May 16, 2024 (Andover, MA) – Northern Essex Community College Assistant Professor of Human Services Lisa Fabbri-Lopez was among the honorees at this year’s YWCA Tribute to Women event. The annual luncheon, now in its 41st year, honors local women who are making a difference in their communities.

Fabbri-Lopez was nominated by NECC Vice President of the Lawrence Campus & Community Relations Noemi Custodia-Lora and Associate Director of Lawrence Campus & Community Relations Relations Giselle Peguero. They wrote:

“Lisa Fabbri-Lopez embodies a steadfast commitment to social justice and equity, actively fostering diversity and inclusion initiatives. Her dedication to lifelong learning and growth is evident in her persistent advocacy for accessible and equitable education. Lisa’s empathetic and compassionate engagement extends beyond her faculty role, as she also serves as a crisis support provider in the community, prioritizing the well-being of her students and the quality of their education in the Human Service field. Despite her full-time teaching responsibilities, she remains deeply involved in community support efforts, demonstrating unwavering integrity and dedication as a human service professional. Working alongside Lisa is not only productive but also enjoyable, thanks to her thoughtful, kind and strategic approach to collaboration.”

Fabbri-Lopez transitioned from an adjunct professor to a full-time faculty member three years ago. Currently, she leads the Center for Business and Professional Studies, which serves students across various divisions, including Human Services. She also recently spearheaded the creation of a soon-to-be-launched Senior Care Certificate program.
