The “Real” Wonder Woman

The Napa Chamber of Commerce and Mechanics Bank has chosen our Executive Director Lisa Lewis-Javar as this year’s medical professional of the year!

Along with being a full-time R.N. at Kaiser Permanente, Lisa is a tireless Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner leading a team of 5 forensic nurses. She received her forensics degree at Kaplan University and has been a dedicated lead SANE for 12 years at SANE SART. She played an integral role in helping to start a Rape Crisis center in Zambia and has her eyes on Rwanda in the near future. In Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia they can have up to 135 child sexual assaults in one month.

Recently, she created a stir on Hwy. 29 by teaming up with and Shared Hope International by placing a billboard that reads, “This man wants to rent your daughter”.  Outspoken and fearless, Lisa is determined to bring awareness to the issues of sexual trafficking and exploitation of children.

Lisa is an asset to our 503c non-profit and certainly to Napa, Marin and Solano Counties.

“This award is about so many women ,children, boys and girls who have been victimized. I hope this will bring more awareness to the silence that is so common among sexual assault survivors. Lots of work to be done! Thank you Napa Chamber of Commerce and Mechanics Bank!” Lisa Lewis-Javar ED
