World Affairs Council of Hilton Head

Lisa Harvey

Lisa HarveyLisa Harvey is a retired U.S. Regular Army Officer with over 25 years of experience in strategic operations, organizational development and Human Resources.  She and her husband moved to Hilton Head in 2016.

A graduate of the Naval War College and Webster University, Ms. Harvey acquired three master’s degrees in National Strategic Studies, Human Resources and Business Management.

Passionate about World Affairs, Ms. Harvey had the pleasure of serving overseas for almost 10 years.  After serving as a combat arms officer in the Air Defense Artillery (Patriot) for 4 years, she transitioned to Human Resources which lead to opportunities in both a domestic and international capacity.

Several Career highlights extend beyond her numerous Combat deployments.  While working at the Pentagon, she had the opportunity to be one of a 3-person team driven to successfully change Federal policies governing Wounded Warriors.  The result of these efforts is evident today as policies better reflect the reality of the 21st Century.  Volunteering for a difficult assignment, Ms. Harvey was a driving force in the establishment of the largest Agency within North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCIA).  Assisting with the organizational establishment, Ms. Harvey developed and implemented plans to establish a new 4,000-person structure spread over 34 countries and negotiated agreement of 28 Nations to oblige them to provide military staffing for roughly 2,000 positions.  Negotiations with the International Community was a delightful challenge.

Since retiring from active duty, Ms. Harvey enjoys a semi-retired life as she continues to serve as a Principle Consultant working Internationally with NATO and others.  She also serves on the Executive Board of the Indigo Run Woman’s Club as a Vice President of the Programs.  Ms. Harvey actively participates in the WACHH Model UN Program.

Lisa’s interest include sailing, performing arts, cycling, reading, world travel and anything done outside.
