Lisa died Aug. 7, 2021, after a courageous battle with cancer. 

Lisa majored in religion at Princeton, and like her father, Robert Pratt ’44, she was a student-athlete. She played five varsity sports and was a member of Cap and Gown. Recently, Lisa could be seen at Roberts Stadium cheering on her younger daughter, Katie ’18, as she played soccer for the Tigers.

Lisa earned an MBA from Pepperdine University. She excelled in her role as president and CEO of the Health Research Association and established several successful nonprofits. In 2013 she relocated to Washington, D.C., where she worked as a senior management analyst and special adviser at the Department of Veterans Affairs as well as deputy director of the Center for Women Veterans. 

Lisa kept the Princeton motto of “in the nation’s service and the service of humanity” close to heart as a board member of the Princeton Bisexual, Transgender, Gay and Lesbian Alumni Association (BTGALA) and as a mentor to numerous Princeton undergraduates. At age 59 she was offered a spot on the U.S. master’s field hockey team. Suffice it to say she never stopped moving! 

Lisa is survived by her daughters, Elizabeth and Katherine ’18; her mother, Elizabeth Walker Pratt; her brothers David, Robert, and Henry ’77; and her partner Suzanne MacKall. Lisa was an inspiration to everyone who knew her.
