A Wabash resident since 2010, Lisa Gilman established Redemption Development which has invested in the downtown by historically restoring seven severely deteriorated buildings. This investment has provided luxury apartments and retail and office spaces which after having become occupied have helped the downtown area to thrive. Lisa brings 25+ years of development experience to the Boards on which she serves. These include Honeywell Foundation, Grow Wabash County, Historic Preservation Commission, and previously with Wabash Marketplace, and Kosciusko County Shelter for Abuse.
When not managing and developing real estate, Lisa is operating Wabash Woollen Works, and Fiber Arts Center in downtown Wabash. This facility is multi-faceted by providing event space for private groups, fiber arts classes, and the manufacturing of fiber textiles. For the last six years, Lisa has also participated in Kids Hope USA where she mentors at-risk students at Metro North and Sharp Creek Elementary.
