Work Life


Lisa is a seasoned veteran of the computer industry, with an extensive background (as illustrated on her LinkedIn profile). She currently works for a well-known higher learning institution in Chicago. Previously, she had worked for Orbitz and Lucent and had been a contractor in Antarctica for the National Science Foundation (among many agencies she served as a government contractor for 18 years).

Lisa's volunteer activities include (a) providing weather service to the Naperville Emergency Management Agency and (b) co-teaching career transition workshops at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Naperville, Illinois and facilitating an accountability group. She also does the occasional job-seeker presentation to help people looking for work (or better work).

Weather and  Storm Chasing


Lisa has been an avid severe weather fan since her first tornado encounter at the age of 11. She has been chasing in the heart of Tornado Alley each spring since 1996. "Chasing offers the chance to see God's power up close and personal. It offers the chance to learn humility," she says.
