Pivot Point Clinical Director, Elizabeth Sparling approached Lisa Ferrier regarding an employment opportunity with Pivot Point back in January of 2011. Lisa joined the Pivot Point team and the rest, as they say, is history!
Having worked in the field for over 15 years in a wide variety of roles Lisa has been an Education Assistant for both the Vancouver and Victoria School Districts, a staff member for the Ontario CEPAS regional program, and she has also worked as a Private Interventionist.
Further to her years of experiences, Lisa holds a variety of certifications such as her Autism Intervention Training Certificate from Queen Alexandra Centre for Children’s Health, Verbal Behaviour for Children Diagnosed with Autism and Intensive Behavioural Intervention Training from the Behaviour Institute of California, Children with Challenging Behaviour Certificate from UBC, and School-Aged Childcare Certificate from VCC.
We asked Lisa to share a little more about herself.
Tell us a little about what made you choose this career path.
Growing up, I felt my path was to be an artist. I loved painting. While I was in College in first year graphic design, I was assisting in teaching lithography and acid etching to a group of youth. It was my first experience working with children and it changed my mind. I am grateful for that experience and how my life path transformed. As a result, I have been able to work all over the world, learning from amazing people, and I’ve been challenged and inspired by amazing children.
What’s one thing you value about working at Pivot Point?
I value the sense of team and family. I also admire the compassion and commitment of my colleagues and how they go above and beyond for our families. It makes me proud.
What do you like to do in your spare time? How do you unwind?
In my spare time I bake cookies with my two little girls and take them on bike rides. I watch late night TV with my husband, and eat frozen pizza. I also have begun to run, and love it. I ran my first half marathon in the fall of 2015 and now I am addicted!
Our Victoria office is located on the lower level of the Parliament View Shopping Centre, just two blocks behind the parliament buildings in beautiful James Bay.
