Biography

Lisa Quist grew up in a Minneapolis, MN suburb and never dreamed she would marry a farmer. Once life took a different path for her and she found herself married to a farmer and farming with him full time, her perspective quickly changed to not being able to imagine doing anything else. She farmed in Minnesota with her husband for 12 years before making the heartbreaking decision to sell out due to lack of a transition plan. While farming, Lisa and her husband did all their business with Farm Credit and because of this, she was able to experience firsthand the integral role Farm Credit plays in agriculture in America. When she needed to get a job off the farm, Farm Credit was her first choice for employment; she has now been with Compeer Financial for 5 years. In 2019, Compeer clients indicated their number one need from Compeer was assistance with transition planning, and Lisa was asked to lead the initiative to bring transition planning solutions to the clients. She immediately said yes to the opportunity as the initiative hit so close to home. Today, she is in her dream job, working at Compeer Financial and helping to ensure Compeer clients are able to continue their farming operations for generations to come. She has been married for 27 years and has four children ages 17-22. In June of this year she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Business Studies in Industrial and Organizational Psychology, completing a life-long goal by graduating before any of her children graduated from college.
