About me

As a Copywriter and Chief Creative Officer for over 20 years, Lisa has managed agencies with upwards of 200 people, working across multiple clients and brands that are monolithic, large, small and teeny. In addition to being a prolific writer and integrated thinker who can do both humor and heartstrings, Lisa’s a particularly skilled presenter and ‘big thinker’ with an excellent pitch record who’s able to quickly get to the core of a cohesive brand idea across digital, social, print and TV. Lisa was named one of the 30 most creative women in advertising by Business Insider and was listed as one of the top 27 creative leaders in the country by Adweek. Her work has won nearly every major industry award in every color, including Cannes Lions, Clio, One Show, ANDY, D&AD, Communication Arts and Effies. In her spare time, Lisa has taken her dogs, Schmutzy and Plop, to the highest levels of international competition in the sport of dog agility, becoming the two-time Westminster Agility Champion and representing the United States team at the World Agility Championships. She’s a board member of Time's Up Advertising and cherishes being a mentor to women in advertising and seeing them rise up the ranks. She’s also a big fan of kindness. As she likes to put it, “Good things seem to follow it.”
