Raised in the far-out suburbs of Chicago, Lisa has called Ohio her second home since earning a BFA in Illustration from The Columbus College of Art & Design. With a diverse career in the visual arts — working as a Commercial Illustrator, Giftware Designer, Hand-letterer, and Graphic Designer — she leads with the belief that creativity is a way of being that we ALL have access to. Always open to learning new tools of the trade, Lisa has found that staying curious, and experimenting with new ways to reach people is what makes life interesting. Lisa’s leadership style = empathy, vision, action, repeat.
