Meet Lisa Narrell-Mead, 2013 Woman of Distinction

Lisa Narrell-Mead began her professional career with a legal career in private practice. She then transitioned to the banking community, where she has worked for more than 20 years.

She serves on the junior board of the YWCA of Central Alabama, and on the boards of the Red Mountain Theatre Company, the American Heart Association and the Alabama Humanities Foundation, for which she helped to raise more than $50,000 at a fundraiser saluting Harper Lee’s classic To Kill a Mockingbird. Narrell-Mead was also chosen as a finalist for the Birmingham Business Journal’s Top Human Resources Executives Award and is an alumna of the Momentum Women’s Leadership Program.

Narrell-Mead received her bachelor of science in political science from Birmingham-Southern College and her juris doctorate from Emory University School of Law. She has a particular passion for giving back to her community, with an emphasis on issues affecting women and children.
