Lisa Harrison De Freitas ‘88

Director of Gift Planning

DeFreitas Family
 I am originally from Alabama (Roll Tide!) but came to Wofford in the fall of 1984. I was a cheerleader at Wofford and coached the squad for 5 years after I graduated. After graduating from Wofford in 1988, I worked away from the college for 1 year before returning to a position in the Advancement Office. I spent the first 26 years of my career in the Annual Giving Office. During that time we increased our Annual Fund by 137% from $1.2 million to over $3 million.
I met my husband, Pablo, here on campus. He was (and still is) a soccer player. Pablo and I have two kids: a daughter, Deanna who is a senior Interior Design major at Converse College, and a son, Tanner who is a senior Finance and Spanish major at Wofford (and, of course, he plays on the soccer team like his Dad). In my leisure time, I enjoy theater, dancing and reading a good book by the pool or on the beach.  

I have really enjoyed the opportunity to work with alumni, parents, friends and students through the years. As Director of Gift Planning, I look forward to working with individuals to find ways that they can meet their personal goals and impact Wofford in a meaningful way at the same time.
