Lutheran Family Services of Virginia executives Lisa Morgan and Tresha Lafon have stepped up to new positions, Morgan as Chief Operating Officer, and Lafon as the organization’s first Chief Quality Officer.
Morgan and Lafon had been LFSVA’s vice presidents of program operations for three years.
“Lisa has over 25 years of experience in the provision and leadership of human services,” Ratke said. “If you know Lisa, you are also aware of her engaging interpersonal skills, her ability to inspire others, and the passion that she brings to the mission of our organization.”
“I am thrilled and honored to assume this role with such an amazing organization,” Morgan said. “I look forward to building on the efforts that are well underway to improve communication and connectedness across all programs and locations, and to work with leadership in all of our divisions to access resources that will further strengthen and sustain our services.”
Lafon has been with LFSVA since 2001.
“Tresha is one of those people who willingly takes on any job or task and completes it superbly,” Ratke said. “As demonstrated by her tenure with our organization, Tresha is also dedicated to LFSVA and to our mission. “
“As Chief Quality Officer, I will work with all divisions and departments to ensure we are meeting our guiding principles as an agency, that we have compliant programs, that we are striving for high-quality services, and that we are providing our staff with the tools and resources they need to complete their jobs,” Lafon said.
“I cannot think of any two people better suited to these two key leadership positions, and I am very grateful that both Lisa and Tresha were willing to take on these responsibilities,” Ratke said.
