Lisa worked at Third Rail Management from 1993-2000. She handled the day-to-day affairs of artists such as Green Day, Seal, Alanis, Goo Goo Dolls, Weezer and Kara’s Flowers (Maroon 5). Then, after having her first and only child in 2000, she happily took time off to be a musical mom. But, the industry kept pulling her back in. In 2005, she teamed up with Geoff at Fundamental Music. Lisa continued working with Fundamental through 2011, until she decided to join the creative pitching team for the Disney Music Group. After three and a half years learning the corporate side of the music industry, Lisa felt her indie roots calling and decided it was time for a return to her home at the Fundamental offices.
