Lisa A. Hoffman, CDM, CFPP
North Region Director of Nutrition &
Nominated by Dorothy Radermacher
Lisa has been a member of MN ANFP since 7/8/1996. She has been active in the Chapter and has served as Membership Chair and on the Communications Team where she was responsible for the website. In the fall of 2014 Lisa was notified her position was eliminated. The company was reorganizing, and they were creating a North Region Director of Nutrition & Foodservice. At the same time, they entered into a Partnership for a Healthier American Project. Through application & interview she was offered the position. Her responsibilities include: inpatient clinical teams & outpatient education revenue; lead for 2 of the 7 hospitals in the Fairview Health System. While learning the new facility & teams, she implemented the Partnership for a Healthier America program in 1 year, rather than the standard 3 years.
Lisa also implemented a composting program during this time and came in under budget. She is currently working to eliminate all foam in her operation. Through all the transition she and the supervisors started a huddle twice a week to keep staff informed about each & everything they were working on. They created goal boards and updated monthly. Employee engagement scores rose during this time.
Since Lisa has been at Fairview (2009) she has been a co-lead on starting an employee recognition program called "Sparks". She sits on the Board of Directors for the Meals ala Car program, and leads or participates in many volunteer opportunities such as March of Dimes, Heart Walk, Taste events, Habitat for Humanity, Relay for Life, Safety Fairs, Ladies Night Out and many more.
Lisa is a true asset to her family, friends, employer, community and makes the world a better place.
