Years Of Guiding People
AKA Dr. Lisa

Hi! I'm Dr. Lisa Richardson

I’m on a mission to help women executive directors of local nonprofits have healthy relationships with their organizations.

After getting let go from my job while I was hospitalized from the ER to have my younger son – nearly 2 months early – I was stuck. Thank God for resilience!

After a good WTF meltdown (and a healthy delivery), I dusted myself off and built myself a freelance web design business. 13 years later, we’ve evolved into full-service digital marketing agency with many happy clients and a reputation I’m really proud of.

So, what do you get when you hire me or invite me to speak at your event or teach that workshop?

You get real behavior changes.

You get to see what can happen when you stop mistaking slavery for service.

You also get anime-inspired t-shirts and occasionally 80’s dance battles.

Your organization relies on core tech tools & systems. The more you understand them, the better off your nonprofit will be.

Your marketing. Your service delivery. Your donor relationships. Your capital campaigns. All made better with a little #nonprofitopschat with Dr. Lisa.

Reach out, and let’s talk future.

Fast Facts

Mom. Geek. Leader.

I’ve been a single parent of 2 awesome boys (now one boy & one man) for my entire entrepreneurship journey. A lot of advice for women about business management comes from people who have a wage-earning spouse. My experience is different, and it has colored the way I make decisions both as a parent and as a business owner.

Yep, Dr. Lisa Richardson is ‘really a doctor.’

My study area was higher education administration, with a focus on instructional technology. Specifically, online learning. I’ve spoken at international conferences on the topic and advise edupreneurs on best practices in growing their brand authority and businesses.

I sit on the editorial board of a peer-reviewed academic journal, as well as  on the board of a nonprofit dedicated to higher education for justice-impacted persons.

I love the stories, the action, and the art. Also, #CaptainYami

The accents still come out sometimes – the Jamaican when I’m teaching or having a good time, the Bronx when 🤷🏾‍♀️

Connect with me directly (& less formally) via social. While I’m most often on Instagram & LinkedIn, you’ll find me nearly everywhere.
(My TikTok journey may amuse you.)
