Summary of Industry Experience

Marketing

Lisa has designed and maintained WordPress websites for hundreds of clients since 2007. She got her start as a niche blogger and began to catch the attention of local businesses. When she saw that her skills could support her family she decided to sell a few of her blogs to local clients and begin building custom sites. At first, she mainly worked with friends and family but it quickly became more work than she could handle and she began hiring other stay-home moms to write web content for her clients. Today she has stepped back, in order to take a position that encourages her to get dressed every day and talk to people in real life but her business is still going strong.

Hospitality

Lisa has written regular and seasonal menus for several local restaurants and has been involved with the writing of marketing materials, employee training manuals, business plans, quarterly and annual investor reports. In addition, she's written local guides for small innkeepers and boutique hotels designed to help visitors get acquainted with the area.

Education

In 1992, Lisa was attending school to become a teacher and working as a substitute for a private school in Los Angeles County. It was then that she decided to homeschool her own children and stayed close to the education industry, shopping for curriculum, writing reviews, staying active in the local homeschooling community and writing for Home Educator's Family Times, The Link Homeschooling Newspaper, Alternative Education Resource Organization and other publications. Her kids have been exposed to a wide variety of educational environments over the years and she's found writing projects throughout it all, writing for PTA newsletters, classroom fundraising letters, Volunteer handbooks and web content.
