Alysa (Lisa) Parker, LPN, Nurse Care Manager
Hi, I’m Lisa Parker and I’m a Licensed Practical Nurse with Eleanor Health for all of New Jersey. While my original Bachelor’s Degree didn’t lead me to anything I’m passionate about, it clicked later in life that Nursing was it for me. I have been a nurse for more than 16 years with over 10 years in the field of addiction in various settings. Eleanor is a wonderful place to work and I love helping people feel better to live amazing lives. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, family and friends, listening to heavy metal, binge watching TV shows and daydreaming of living by the water.

Keri McBride, LCSW, Behavioral Health Clinician
Hello! My name is Keri McBride, LCSW, and I’m a Behavioral Health Clinician for Eleanor Health in New Jersey. After working for a Managed Care Organization for the last 2.5 years as a Behavioral Health Care Manager, my desire to return to my true passion of providing direct clinical care could not be avoided any longer. I’m bringing with me over 10 years of individual and group therapy experience in a nonprofit community mental health center (CMHC). During my time with the CMHC, I was fortunate to work in many of their diverse settings, including Substance Use Intensive Outpatient, Early Intervention Support Service, Adult and Adolescent Partial Care, and Residential programs. When I am not working, you can find me enjoying trips to historical places all over the tri-state area or listening to 80s hair bands/watching 80s movies. I am thrilled to be part of the Eleanor family and to have the honor of helping our members live amazing lives.
