We wanted to learn more about Lisa beyond the resume - here are her answers to our questions...
What's your home town?
I’m from Cranston, RI, which feels 15,000 miles and about 100 snowstorms away from Rogers, my current home. I’ve been in AR for more than two years and I love living here!
Why did you decide to join Bold Retail?
I’ve worked in very large and very small companies; each has unique challenges and opportunities. Bold brings to bear the best of each world for our clients. I'm fortunate to be joining a team of knowledgeable, accomplished leaders in retail. I can’t wait to see the innovative solutions we’ll create together.
What's the first thing you ever bought on Amazon.com? What does that say about you?
I bought a beautifully illustrated volume of Rumi’s poetry as a gift. I couldn’t wait (in those pre-Prime days) to give it to my friend. This says I’ll find the perfect unexpected present for you, but might be so excited I’ll spill the beans before it arrives.
What's your favorite book?
The Power of Myth by Joseph Campbell. Each time I pick it up I learn more about how story links past to future and connects cultures across the globe.
What's your favorite place?
Bonnet Shores in Narragansett, RI. I spent every summer at my grandparents’ home across the street from the beach. I still hear the waves in my dreams sometimes.
"I'm happiest when I'm..."
…within hugging distance of my daughter. We have a blast when we’re together—people say we should have our own show.
"People would be surprised to know that..."
…I collect images of actors in costume as Cleopatra. My favorite among the 100+ in my collection is an original still from the 1912 silent film starring Theda Bara. Second is probably Milton Berle.
