We'd like to introduce you today to Lisa. Lisa is a 49 year old veteran of the Marines who resides in Hamlin, West Virginia.  Lisa not only served 2 and a half years in the military, but she was previously a music teacher and loved being able to educate individuals.  As the result of a car accident several years ago, Lisa suffered a brain hemorrhage and also experiences the effects of post concussive syndrome.  Lisa would have bouts of depression and although she likes to be involved in activities with others, she was unable to motivate herself to leave her house. That's where Yogi comes in! Thanks to Guardian Angels and Healing Heroes, Lisa and Yogi have been paired up, and in the short time they have been together, they have formed a strong bond.  Yogi has enabled Lisa to go to stores and to restaurants without needing another person with her.  Lisa plans on proudly advocating for Guardian Angels and educating her community about the importance and benefits of service dogs. We are so happy for you, Lisa!
