Sheri Brodeur – Director of Corporate Relations, MIT, ILP

“Lisa worked with us to build a new program at the Industrial Liaison Program at MIT – ‘The MIT Startup Exchange’. She played a critical role in this new effort by ensuring we had a complete and curated list of MIT startups in our new database and helping us establish a series of workshops that took significant effort to organize. Lisa prepared communication materials for these workshops and reached out to both presenters and attendees to make sure these events were successful. Lisa did an excellent job while at MIT and was always punctual, professional and helpful as we built a new team. We were very sorry to see her leave to pursue a new position.”

She manages a roster of 100+ volunteers, and does it efficiently. Lisa is a true self-starter while also being motivated AND fun!”
