Lisa Jorissen - Executive Director

Education: Bachelor of Social Work from Minnesota State University of Moorhead.  Licensed by the State of North Dakota, L.S.W.

Experience: I have worked with Adult Life Programs and Heartland since 2007 and with PCA services since 2004.  I also have experience in residential settings for two years working as a direct care staff and still work with PCA services.  I am focusing my attention at Adult Life Programs and Heartland Industries as the Executive Director, however love working with two separate but distinct companies that offer Consumers so much each and every day. I want to grow as a company and I want relationships between agencies to be smooth and effortless.  I want to be transparent and open so we can have a successful relationship for all to share at our day program. 

What You Like most About Your Job:
  Is the ability to put a smile on someone’s face and change their day for the better.  I want to be contagious and optimistic as the Consumers I work for have changed my life forever!!  Each and every day I come to work, I see Consumers smile and appreciate life for the small things.  They make each day unique and worthwhile.  I feel that I am making a difference in the community and in each Consumers life in a small, but vital way.  This is why I love my job and continue to work for individuals that need assistance reaching their goals in life!

Shannon Scott - Operations Manager

Education: Fertile-Beltrami High School, EGF Tech  for PTA and PIMT

Experience:  I have worked at Heartland since 2004 and before that I worked at Fraser LTD for 9 years.

Hobbies: I love to just spend time with our family and friends. When I do have free time and not watching cartoons or Disney movies I enjoy watching HGTV, “Reality” TV, and reading.

Family: Blaine and our two boys Brayden & Bryar

What I like most about my job:

What is there not to like? I get the opportunity to watch Consumers excel in their work skills and accomplish their goals (personal and work). To see each person so excited and proud of their work they complete each day is so rewarding. Working here has also helped me take the time to enjoy life and have fun. Consumers make my job enjoyable. I am very proud to work alongside each person here.

Karl Meyer - Director of Employment Services

Education: BA in Political Science and History from Concordia College, Moorhead MN.

Experience:  I’ve spent most of my life in sales and management in the foodservice industry.  This background has been a great asset for me in going out in the community and talking with local businesses looking for meaningful employment for our Consumers.

Hobbies:  I am a huge music buff.  I enjoy playing guitar with my oldest son. I have also recently taken up the frustrating and addicting sport of golf.

What I like most about my job: What I enjoy most about my job is getting to know and talking with all of the Consumers.  As my duties here at Heartland expand I really enjoy learning the different aspects of what makes this a truly unique organization to be a part of.

Family:  I am married with two great teenage boys.  Looking forward to one being a famous musician and the other being in the NFL.
