Lisa was born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. After spending her childhood between Hong Kong and England, she came to Chicago with her family to continue her education. After graduating with a degree in Business Administration from the University of Illinois, she took a trek through Southeast Asia and spent time volunteering in Cambodia through an UNESCO program. The experience helped her discover her passion for social endeavors and international development. Upon her return, she took a job in consulting for non-profit research institutions across the US, assisting with technology implementations and business process redesign. To further her knowledge of cutting edge interactive technology, Lisa now works at an advertising agency and manages website development and execution. She hopes one day to combine her passions for interactive technology and international development.
