In her management roles, Lisa has leveraged all communications and media channels, from PR to Relationship Marketing to interactive and new media, to create innovative and award-winning campaigns and multi-media events that have generated greater awareness, interest and sales.
At Mercedes-Benz, Lisa was recognized for an award-winning Interactive TV campaign to launch the new M-Class, was a key member of a multi-media global campaign to launch the R-Class and led strategic communication programs designed to connect consumers with the type of vehicle that best fit their needs.
Lisa believes in the power of art to heal children's lives and has been an active volunteer and supporter of Free Arts NYC, an non-profit organization that works with children and their families in the New York.
Lisa has curated exhibits in public and private spaces throughout the tri-state area. She is also a member of the Saint Peter's Church Art and Architecture Review committee, Bronx Arts Alliance and a co-chair of the Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD), a London-based organization.
