Alison Lizarraga is a decorated Marine Corps Veteran.
But if that isn’t enough to impress you, here’s more.
Lizarraga, who has lived in Poway since 1999, is a leader in the Girl Scouts, a service unit manager for the Blue Sky Service Unit, a mentor for high school girls and a volunteer with the Salvation Army, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Ronald McDonald House and Radys Children’s Hospital, Friends Family Community Connection and the Friendship Circle.
Though she has positively benefitted many, Lizarraga considers it an honor to give back.
“It’s very important to me to be able to give back to anyone who has served or is currently serving this country,” she said. “I have experienced their sacrifices first-hand.
“I believe people need to be involved and become part of something bigger than themselves. Find something you’re passionate about, embrace diversity and inspire others to be the difference through random acts of kindness.”
