Lisa Prince Fishler
Founder and Executive Director
Lisa has always shared her life with a colorful collection of animal friends. An artist, professional photographer, and tireless advocate for all living things, HeARTs Speak is the embodiment of all she believes in. Lisa feels passion is the spark that can ignite change, and she strives to create a work culture that always considers and acts on this. She can also rebuild a carburetor, so if your shelter vehicles need any work, she might be able to help with that, too.
Director of Operations
Caitlin became involved in animal sheltering after years of volunteering as a grant writer for local nonprofits in her area. She has always loved animals and was lucky enough to stumble into a career that allowed her to explore that passion. Prior to joining HeARTs Speak, Caitlin was the Assistant Director of Animal Farm Foundation. She has found her four-legged soul mate in her dog, Paddy, and hopes to bring to her role what she has learned from him: endless curiosity, unshakeable optimism, and the tenacity to lead with compassion.
Director of Communications
Hannah is an unabashed guinea pig enthusiast, grammar fanatic, and painter, who weaved her way to HeARTs Speak via several years in animal rescue management, and a stint in digital marketing. She fearlessly welcomes the challenge of a character limit, and if she’s not whipping up blog posts or pitching stories, you’ll probably find her sipping Earl Grey tea and wondering what the weather is like today in her homeland of New Zealand.
