A former award-winning journalist, Lisa is a public relations pro with a knack for program creation and management. She has developed strategic communications programs for a variety of clients, including Federal Student Aid, National Diabetes Education Program and the Office on Women's Health. Her work covers a broad range of communications skills and experiences, from political consulting to film and video. Former clients range from nonprofit organizations to government agencies.
