Lisa is slowly making her advertising tour of North America. She started her career in Toronto working at a local advertising agency, then BBDO and Ogilvy. In 2007, she moved to New York City starting at Digitas on the American Express account, then moved on to be the digital creative lead for the worldwide SAP account at Ogilvy New York. Finally, LA called and she moved one more time to Ogilvy Los Angeles, helping to shape integrated campaigns for Tabasco and Cisco. Today, she’s the Creative Director at GolinHarris Los Angeles, leading the Creator community for the entire Western Region (Los Angeles, San Francisco and Orange County).
When it comes to the work she’s written and created nearly everything from social media and websites to direct mail and TV. She even penned the back of the Tabasco box. Her client list is just as diverse including Wrigley’s, The Royal Bank of Canada, IBM, Pepsi and more. She was a key member of the global re-branding team for Yahoo! and helped launch the SAP “Run Better” campaign, overseeing digital creative worldwide.
With an armful of accolades including a DMA Gold Echo, Cannes Direct Finalist, Canadian Marketing Awards, Summit Awardsplus experience judging The Caples, Echos and Summits, Lisa is an accomplished creative talent. She even adds the title of Adjunct Professor to her resumé, teaching Internet Copywriting at New York University.
Now that Los Angeles is home, she’s busy exploring new surf spots and still can’t get over the fact that this is winter weather.
