ABOUT Lisa T. Hannegan, MS, CNS, ACNP

Ms. Hannegan is both a Nurse Practitioner and a Neuroscience Clinical Nurse Specialist who practiced within the Department of Neurological Surgery at the University of California San Francisco for over 25 years.  She is also an Assistant Clinical Professor at the UCSF School of Nursing.

Ms. Hannegan has worked directly with thousands of patients with neurosurgical diagnoses and brings her considerable expertise to the Foundation. In addition to being a founding member of Mission:BRAIN, Lisa is a Co-President of the Aneurysm and AVM Foundation.

Ms. Hannegan’s motivation to serve as board member is fueled by her appreciation of the challenges faced by neurosurgery patients, the lessons she has been taught by their lives and her desire to give back to this community.  She thanks her parents, who volunteered at mission clinics in Guatemala each year and instilled in Ms. Hannegan an understanding of how important it is to give back to those who are less fortunate than we are.
