Brain Balance Director
Elisabeth (Lis) Klemme attended the University of Missouri where she received bachelor’s degrees in religious studies and journalism. During college she worked in after-school programs and realized how much she loved working with teenagers. After college she worked for the Boys & Girls Club in Columbia, Missouri, as their teen director and manager of grant writing and grant compliance. After getting married and moving to Kansas City, she found Brain Balance. She started as the Assistant Director and was later promoted to Program Director at Shelterwood. Working at Shelterwood merged Lis’s love of God, excitement for working with teenagers, and her love of the Brain Balance program. Shelterwood and Brain Balance are both in the business of restoration and healing. Lis loves to see God’s healing in the lives of teens and to witness their process of restoration. In her spare time, Lis spends a lot of time at the park with her 2-year-old daughter, Corrine, and husband, Jason. She enjoys healthy cooking and traveling to see family and friends.
