My name is Lisa Machar, and I am a member of Seville Presbyterian Church. I am a member of our Worship Committee, I chair our Nominating Committee, and I’m a new member of our Session. I am a wife and mom of two “kids”, 22 and 17. I currently work as an Administrative Assistant at Medina County Domestic Relations Court. Prior to that, I was an Advocate for a local non-profit organization by the name of Hope and Healing Battered Women’s Shelter. After working a year in the confidential shelter, I found myself working in the Medina Domestic Relations Court as the Family Justice Advocate. I worked closely with survivors and families of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. I became certified as a Credentialed Advocate with NOVA and a Registered Advocate with the State of Ohio. I am excited to begin this new journey and am grateful for the opportunity to be in this Commissioned Ruling Elder program through Muskingum Valley Presbytery.
