Olga Lisinska

Director, President & Chief Operating Officer

Ms. Lisinska is native of Katowice, Poland, growing up as a child under the former communist regime.  Olga moved to the United States in 2001, specifically Atlanta, Georgia, to work as a live-in au pair just one week after graduating high school. She proceeded to receive a sponsorship from her host family to attend and eventually graduate from Georgia Perimeter College in 2006.  Since 2008, Olga has been involved in the tax credit scholarship funding organization industry, working with nonprofit K-12 private schools marketing tax credit scholarships and donations.  During that time Olga has successfully partnered with large numbers of nonprofit K-12 schools to market tax credits to their support community.

Starting in 2014, Olga has been the Operations & Executive Director of Palmetto Kids FIRST Scholarship Program (PKF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  At PKF, Olga partnered with over 70 independent K-12 schools and raised over $18 million in tax credits to fund scholarships for children with “special needs”.  Olga was able to accomplish this while maintaining an unprecedented 3% overhead structure.  Ms. Lisinska has experience in all phases of startup operations, fundraising, and partnership development.

    Olga and her husband, Jeff Davis, have been married since 2010.  They love to travel and explore different parts of the world and both believe that travel is one of the greatest education opportunities ever and helps expand one’s view of the world.  Their passion for travel and desire to help others is a perfect fit for the business model of travelsmiles.org.
