“To whom much is given, much will be required.”

— Luke 12:48


Committed, smart, and no-nonsense. Lisa has a special ability to get things done and lives in the world of action. Even in those times when things go sideways, she embodies the maxim “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.” What keeps her continually moving forward? She is driven to connect people and companies so they can thrive and build something unique together. No matter the task at hand, Lisa goes the extra mile to help others and uncover brilliant people at work.

Lisa discovers, engages, and evaluates executive leaders in her role as principal. From thinking creatively of where and how to engage the best talent to asking great questions and listening to each candidate’s story, Lisa develops a deep understanding of the clients’ needs and goals to connect them with the right talent. All along, she takes the time to provide a great client and candidate experience.

Lisa has over 25 years of experience in the executive search industry, serving clients in consumer, healthcare, financial services, food and agriculture, and nonprofit sectors. 

Before joining Acertitude, Lisa was an independent executive search consultant. Her experience also spans working for global executive search firms like Heidrick & Struggles as well as boutique executive search firms. She has significant experience in the financial services industry, having worked as an executive recruiter for Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers.

When she is not providing solutions to clients, Lisa likes nothing more than taking in a movie or sharing a home-cooked meal with her family and friends. And of course, as a doer, she enjoys helping people working through life challenges.
