About Lisa
In her role at Tamarack, Lisa works with cities and organizations to improve the way they engage with their communities. Over the last five years her work has focused on creating authentic engagement strategies for municipalities and organizations, integrated communications planning, and the use of technology and creativity for engagement. Lisa constantly advocates for simplicity in infrastructure, frameworks and design and loves applying the principles of marketing, advertising, loyalty, and user experience to community initiatives.

Lisa comes to this work with seven years of experience at Quarry Integrated Communications - one of Canada's leading communications firms, where she worked with clients in agribusiness, healthcare, financial services and technology. Lisa brings private sector knowledge to public sector work. Hailing from Australia, Lisa also worked on major water infrastructure projects as the liaison between Government, Engineering and the Community.
