After graduating from Brown University, Lisa worked for several years in the financial services industry developing program trading systems for both Morgan Stanley and, later, Greenwich Capital Markets. After moving to the Shoreline area and starting a family, she worked as a part-time database programmer for a biomaterials company. She has always been excited by educational and community environments, whether it was arranging for interviews as the Brown University Alumni Schools Area Chair, teaching martial arts, playing saxophone in the Guilford and Branford Town Bands, serving as the President of the Temple Beth Tikvah Sisterhood, or, most recently, volunteering as a mentor herself. Lisa holds black belts in several martial arts forms, is an avid tennis player, and lives in Madison with her husband Joe, her three college/grad school aged children, and two over-active golden-doodles. She is very excited to be part of the program.
