Maybe inspired by her mother who started her own tech career back in the 1960s when women were few and far between in the tech ranks, Lisa has worked in communications for tech groups since her college days, first as a journalist and later as a public relations pro. For several years she led the communications efforts of the Consumer Electronics Show, the world’s largest tech event. While building her own boutique agency, she consulted for Creating IT Futures early on to help America’s military veterans establish their own IT careers. Most recently she worked for CompTIA, leading its traditional media and social media outreach worldwide. She’s pleased to return to Creating IT Futures and help to grow its outreach nationwide, so that every hard-working individual can launch their own IT career. Never straying far from her alma mater at Georgetown University, Lisa works for us from her office in the suburbs of Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C.
