Even as a busy SVP in the advertising industry, Lisa always took the time to mentor her team members. Her passion for service helped many of her direct reports reach C-Suite or senior management positions at major organizations like Visa, BBDO and Campbell’s. She brings that same service-oriented approach to her role with Own The Room, understanding each of our client’s needs and creating long-term partnerships to help their people grow.

After graduating with a BA in English and Communications from Fairfield University, Lisa embarked on a nearly 25-year career with Grey Advertising. She joined the company in an entry-level position right out of college, working her way to up the ladder to become a Senior Vice President on the Account Management team. As an SVP, Lisa spearheaded advertising campaigns for leading brands like Hasbro, Six Flags, ConAgra, and Pfizer, always treating her clients as partners and thinking creatively to help them scale. This approach helped Lisa become the first agency partner invited to join both an internal steering committee and a leadership task force at Pfizer.

Lisa is an avid runner, lacing up her sneakers every morning, rain or shine, dark or light. During a trip to Rome, she experienced her most memorable run to-date: a quiet sunrise alone at the Colosseum. When she’s not hitting the pavement, you can find Lisa cooking homemade Neapolitan pizza at her home in New York.
