Lisa and results go hand in hand. Upon joining Arise, she quickly learned the business and developed and implemented a much needed, and very successful marketing strategy. Thanks to her vision and efforts, lead gen and overall marketing results significantly improved at Arise. She is the consummate professional. In addition to her marketing expertise, Lisa is also a great people leader. She is extremely supportive, cares about her direct reports, and coaches them enabling learning and growth. I recommended Lisa for a board position with Women Executive Leadership. There she made an immediate and ongoing impact as well.
Juliann  Scalisi, Director of Data Conversion – Ultimate Software.
Lisa really knows her stuff! She is a hands-on digital media pro that not only understands the inner workings of the web, but creates compelling content, understands the importance of social analytics (and clearly communicates them), and creates online marketing campaigns that yield results. She is a true expert!
Lesly Cardec, Senior VP of Marketing & Public Relations – Ranstad.
I had the pleasure working with Lisa for 3 years and she has a real get the job done attitude. She has a strong strategic view and is truly inspirational at all levels of the business. Her approach and creativity to tackling tough challenges is truly inspiring. She fundamentally changed the way the company marketed, bringing a level of professionalism and legitimacy that had not existed prior and driving record breaking results year over year. I have learned and continue to learn so much from her, a true asset to any company.
