Meet Our Leader
Lisa Abstein lives in the Tupelo area with her husband and Golden Retriever, Holly. Lisa and Holly became a certified Love on a Leash therapy team in 2019. Lisa especially enjoys visiting the pediatric and rehab units at North Mississippi Medical Center but also loves participating in special community activities that spread awareness of the value of pet therapy. Lisa is a Licensed Professional Counselor in private practice who enjoys traveling, especially with her husband and Holly. Her favorite part about volunteering with Love on a Leash is the group fellowship and getting to witness the power of the human-animal connection in action.
