Meet February’s Registry Rock Star: Lisa
Registry Rock Star

Cancer Registry Fact: The data registrars collect provides information to better monitor and advance cancer treatments, conduct research as well as improve cancer prevention and screening programs.

Lisa has worked in the cancer registry industry for 20 years. She decided to become a CTR because she had all the qualifications on the job posting. After speaking to a CTR who encouraged her to apply, she was hired right after the interview. Lisa never imagined it would become her career, much less that she would still be learning new things after 20 years!

Fun Facts About Lisa

  • Credentials: CTR
  • During her free time, Lisa enjoys traveling with her husband, camping and exploring. She also loves Dutch oven cooking, taking her grandkids for ATV rides, helping them catch a fish, or just playing in the dirt.
  • Her hometown is Birdseye, Utah.
  • The number one item on her bucket list is to travel to the Scandinavian countries, where her family is from and go on a nice, slow river cruise to soak it all in. 
  • The Beatles and Queen are her favorite rock ‘n’ roll stars but she enjoys anything that you can dance along to with a good beat! 

As part of the CHAMPS Oncology team, Lisa believes better data saves lives™. Lisa does this work for her father, who passed away from the rare sarcomatoid chromophobe renal cell carcinoma and her mother who beat breast cancer. Lisa loves that the work she does every day can help not just her generation, but also the next generation in finding answers to better treatments and ultimately, a cure.
