The           Team

LISA

Prior to joining Beyond, Lisa spent seven years at Scotiabank as a Commercial Banker.  It was through her volunteer work with organizations such as United Way and Rethink Breast Cancer that Lisa discovered her passion for events.  After completing the Event Management Program at Ryerson University, Lisa had the good fortune of meeting Amy Milne through a mutual friend.  Lisa is detailed-oriented and brings her desire for order and organization to Beyond as our logistics specialist.
 

Lisa earned her B.A. in Economics from McGill University, which is also where she met her husband (and best friend), Jake.  She is a mom to Jack and Mia and is constantly entertained by the funny things that come out of their mouths.  Lisa is a fan of hot cups of tea, fish tacos, freshwater lakes, the NFL, a glass (or two!) of red wine and laughing through life.
