Visibles: Lisa Vasquez Works To Make Immigrants Feel At Home In Nashua

Lisa Vasquez nos contó cómo vivir y crecer entre la República Dominicana y los Estados Unidos formó su vocación: ayudar a los inmigrantes de Nashua a sentirse bienvenidos

Lisa Vasquez, second from left, shares how living and growing up between the Dominican Republic and the U.S. shaped her career choice. Today, she works to make immigrants feel at home in Nashua.

Lisa Vasquez is a second generation Dominican. She grew up in New York, but then moved to the Dominican Republic for two years to attend high school.

That experience changed her and set her on a career path her parents didn’t anticipate. They expected she’d go to a business school. But Lisa discovered her true vocation after taking psychology classes. She had to convince her parents of her new career choice.

Now, she works with immigrants, and hopes to make people feel at home in the U.S.
