Her urban planning and design experience offers her clients practices and deliberative approaches to support their imagination, capacity to experiment and the opportunity to implement innovative solutions.

Lisa’s professional development has been interdisciplinary and expansive. She began her career overseas researching desert architecture and solar building. She worked in a family business, and, as a solopreneur, built her coaching and consulting practice.

Lisa’s services include emotional intelligence assessments, designing strategies with achievable direction and outcomes, concentrating on developing sustainable practices, focused learning, and deep listening.
