Tate has enjoyed a career of more than 25 years in public affairs, healthcare advocacy, and non-profit management.  In 2007, she joined WomenHeart: The National Coalition of Women with Heart Disease as chief executive officer. "I was inspired by WomenHeart's unique mission, committed volunteers and devoted advisors from all corners of the health care community.  No one else does what we do for women, and the need is huge," says Lisa.
