I help you increase your revenue by taming the tech that supports your teams and your business. I’m that smart, cool friend that cheerfully answers all your tech questions and never makes you feel stupid. #TrueStory
Hi! I’m Dr. Lisa, and I live for roadtrips with my kids, always-on wifi, new recipes, and creative spaces. My clients relate to me as a really knowledgeable friend, and I like it that way.
My professional background is long and (very) diverse. I began my career as a academic counselor and then grew as an administrator. In 2009, I started working as a self-taught web developer when my part-time educational management job disappeared because I happened to go into premature labor. I also picked up several software applications training contracts and had a brief stint as a full-time faculty member. Thankfully, I was able to bring alllllllll of my skills together to help small business owners as I evolved into more of a project management role. That mix of a firm technology foundation and advanced soft skills gives me a distinctly user-focused perspective of everyday technology, and helps me communicate how proactively addressing customer needs can help exceed established business goals.
My research focused on how to help people who dislike, fear, or just hate technology to achieve their goals anyway – since the tech isn’t going anywhere. Bring me your email system conversions, your website projects, your software upgrade headaches, your social media strategy woes, your teams in need of inspiration and training – and I’ll give you a calming influence, plain English explanations, excellent documentation, and sometimes, homemade baked goods.
I love speaking to business groups, elected officials, and students about understanding their customers and constituents, choosing the right tech tools for your budget and business goals and economic development based on encouraging local small businesses and technology entrepreneurship. If you’d like to have me out to your event or office, please contact me for booking info and consultations.
