Meet 2018 Famous Former Honoree Lisa Schulz

For over 24 years, Captain Lisa Schulz has served our nation as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Coast Guard. With the help of Girl Scouts, she saw there were no limits to what she could accomplish. Since joining the military, Schulz has helped lead more girls in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities, served as a leader in the Coast Guard’s response to natural disasters and assisted her community in several other ways.

As a Girl Scout Brownie in Indiana, Schulz conquered her fears and learned how to be resourceful and persistent- two things she said have made an impact on the woman she is today. One of the things that drew her to the Girl Scout organization was the environment of inclusivity that Girl Scouts creates- something that also drew her to the Coast Guard.

“There are no limits as a female in the Coast Guard. You can be anything,” she said. “I think between those two organizations, they are really empowering of girls and I really feel girls today need that feeling of empowerment and that feeling of positivity.”

A Girl Scout alum and leader in her field, Schulz said her most significant professional achievement has been being able to help others advance and succeed in the Coast Guard.

Schulz continues to be a leader for her peers, current and future Girl Scouts. Through events like the recent Coast Guard Pride event where girls learned things like life jacket and boating safety, Schulz also serves as a role model for Girl Scouts.
