Almost all of Lisa’s professional life was finance oriented. With an undergraduate degree in international business she joined Continental Bank in Chicago in their international auditing department. After getting an MBA from Northwestern University she moved to multinational lending for the remainder of her time with Continental. She was a senior research analyst with Wagner Investment Management in Denver.
During this time she also served in many capacities with the non-profits, The Women’s Foundation of Colorado (investment chair and board chair), Judi’s House, Project Pave and numerous school and church organizations.
Most recently, Lisa served on the Arts and Cultural Strategic Planning Committee for the Town of Hilton Head. She continues to be involved in the implementation of the recommendations that were approved by the Town Council.
The culmination of these experiences led to being the Executive Director of Colorado Ballet for close to four years during a time of numerous challenges. It made all the difference in understanding a performing arts organization’s finances and options and cementing her support for the arts in the community and schools.
Lisa and her husband, Bill, split their time between Denver and Hilton Head with the tilt in time to Hilton Head.
