Lisa Copenspire, Treasury

Energy and understanding is what Lisa Copenspire-Ross and her husband Chuck, bring to their Boise Bench business, CopenRoss Growlers.   Lisa has lived in Boise since 1989 and is excited to be serving on the Boise Bench Neighborhood Association as Treasurer.  In 2018, after several years of working at Micron, Lisa and her husband decided to fill a niche’ in the beer business  and open a growler fill pub and restaurant.  When searching for the perfect location, it didn’t take long for them to discover that the corner of Orchard and Overland would be the perfect place to serve a cold pint and a warm smile.  Lisa is not only active in her position at Micron but she also enjoys spending time with her three kids, two grand-kids, three fur babies and numerous garden beds.

Katie works at Vacasa in revenue management and analytics, and enjoys volunteering with The Boise Farmers Market, City of Good, and Big Brothers Big Sisters. She and her husband love to garden, camp, and spend time in the beautiful Idaho outdoors. She is excited to be a part of the CBNA Board and is passionate about keeping the Central Bench a great place to live!
