Lisa’s work has always been cause-driven, entrepreneurial, and community focused. She has also thrived in a hands-on setting and enjoys highly personalized work with interesting people, places, and spaces. Since 2009, Nest DC is the ideal professional setting for her and the perfect “second act” professionally. Her career launched in the non-profit sector. She served as the Executive Director of a national environmental non-profit, oversaw operations for a DC-based healthcare coalition and proudly served Planned Parenthood Federation of America for many years as a national field manager.

After a service-based career, why a service-based business? She believes forward-thinking, triple bottom line businesses can create true change in communities. With Nest and Roost, they work to positively impact lives every single day. Her passion for mission-based work is an ideal complement to the homemaking that is an implicit part of our objective as a company. With her broad range of experience, she can manage complex problems and projects, highly functional teams, and operate a large, socially responsible business with an eye toward bottom line results. Though highly committed to their success as a company, it’s just as important to continue service to others. She served 4 years as Board President of La Clinica del Pueblo and currently serves as Commissioner Mayor on the DC Condo Association Advisory Council for the District of Columbia.
