Welcome Lisa Geraghty, Director of Administrative Services

Lisa Geraghty

Lisa Geraghty is joining the Department of Veterinary Medicine as the new Director of Administrative Services.  Her first day is Monday, February 19. 

Lisa has worked for a number of years in finance and business management. In 2000, she started as an Operations Manager with the Center of Marine Biotechnology at University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute, which is one of UMBI's four centers conducting research and training to provide a core of expertise and facilities to advance the state's scientific and economic development.  From there, she joined the University of Maryland College Park in 2007 to manage Special Events on campus for six years. A friend encouraged her to look into research administration so Lisa took ORA's certification class, which is where she discovered her passion in research. 

In 2013, Lisa became the Assistant Director of Administrative Services in BSOS-Economics and then moved to the Math department a year and a half ago for greater focus on research. She is responsible for 35 faculty with 60 research projects totaling approximately $16M.

On a personal note, Lisa is active in her church and works with communities in Baltimore to find funding for summer programs for school-aged kids.  She is a big sports fan and supports the Baltimore Orioles, Ravens and Terps!  She enjoys traveling, playing golf and working in her garden.
