Editors on Lisa’s work


“Here’s real journalism. Through exhaustive research, probing interviews and startling statistics, the series explores the roots of an urgent problem and pokes holes in a government plan to throw money at it. Shocking leads pull parents into stories they won’t put down.” — Parenting Publications of America, Gold Award for a Special Series,  “Overhauling Child Protective Services”

“Lisa is a sharp, witty, versatile self-starting writer with a distinct voice that is both warm and informative. She’s extremely reliable and organized, is a complete pleasure to work with, and is the mainstay of our writing team.” — Talyaa Liera, senior editor, SuperEco

“Lisa’s many talents as a writer, journalist, editor, and copyeditor combined with her extensive experience across print and online media make her a formidable asset to any publishing team — but it’s her infectiously positive attitude and aggressive attention to detail that truly put her at the top of her game. She always meets impossible deadlines with aplomb, and will quickly make you thrilled to have her as a member of any content project.” — Barb Dybwad, director of new business development, Engadget/Joystiq/TUAW (now head of creator partnerships, Recurrency)
