Podcast Episode Featuring Lisa Dempsey

Lisa Dempsey is the founder and CEO of the Forgotten Wishes Foundation, whose mission is to inspire a sense of belonging and be a source of joy for people with disabilities. Lisa belongs to a society of women who share the delights and dilemmas of raising children and caring for adults with special needs. She is a creator, explorer, and advocate. Lisa is also a contributing writer for Girl Camper and guides women’s camping trips. Lisa is happiest when she and her husband, Robert, are gathered around the kitchen table with their family. To refuel her mind and body, Lisa travels in her trailer, takes walks on the beach searching for shells, or heads to New York City to binge-watch Broadway Musicals in person and eat Junior’s Cheesecake. Lisa and her husband, Robert, have been married for 18 years and have four children. They live in Houston, Texas, with their teenage son and two Cardigan Welsh Corgis, Zeus, and Mick. They are Momsie and Popsicle to their two granddaughters. Lisa is grateful to have a circle of extraordinary moms christened “special friends” whose presence adds a copious treasure to her life.
