Lisa came to Fíonta by way of Salesforce.org, where she worked as a Senior Account Executive to nonprofit accounts, including associations and foundations. She is proud to have worked with small and large organizations alike and takes pride in developing creative systems-based solutions for big problems.
After graduating from the United States Naval Academy, Lisa started her career in the United States Navy as a Surface Warfare Officer during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. During that time, she came face-to-face with big social and economic issues affecting global security and human welfare. As a result, she dedicated her life to creating impact and reforming broken systems.
During her early career in nonprofit technology sales, Lisa studied nonprofit and public management at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin, where she focused on social and economic policy. It was there that she became even more passionate about the power of digital transformation for impact and the role of social enterprise in driving innovation in the nonprofit and government sectors.
Following graduate school, Lisa established a consulting business in public relations and social impact strategy, where she supported nonprofits, corporate social responsibility, and social enterprise. She also founded and acted as the Director of Strategy for an international public health organization before being called to join the Salesforce.org team supporting nonprofits.
Lisa is the proud mother of three little ones and travels the globe in support of her husband’s military service. She used to love reading and running when she had free time, which she hopes to have back some day. She actively volunteers as an academic tutor in local schools wherever she moves and loves to plug into her customers’ missions whenever possible.
