Lisa Elowson

Hi, I’m Lisa

My practice focuses on workplace disputes, divorce mediations, family feuds and restorative justice healing.  When it comes to conflict, whether at work, home, or the community, mediation saves time, money, and most importantly, stress. My role as mediator is to serve as a neutral guide to help the parties come to their own resolutions and put peace on the table.  Mediation is a confidential process, and while most issues can be worked through in a day, Gather Mediation will stay with you throughout the entire process.  While based in Vermont, Gather Mediation can assist throughout all of New England.

Academically speaking, Lisa holds a bachelor’s degree with a double major in Communications and Ethics and a Master’s degree in Human Resources Management.  Lisa has been blessed to work in several industries, including healthcare, manufacturing, and television. Lisa recently launched a mediation and conflict resolution practice called Gather Mediation, which focuses on workplace disputes, family & divorce discord, and minimizing incarceration through restorative justice. 

Since arriving in Vermont, Lisa has joined the Boards of Directors for the Town of Williston’s Restorative justice program, the Allied Mental Health of Vermont and Hireability, which focuses on creating employment opportunities for those with disabilities.

ADR Experience

Throughout my career and academic pursuits, I have utilized ADR almost daily! What is ADR?  Mediation!

Mediation is one of the most commonly used methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). In mediation, an independent and neutral advisor works with all parties to allow them to reach a mutually acceptable agreement or solution without taking the matter to court.
