With over 15 years of human resources and recruitment experience to her credit, Lisa has performed more than 35 searches as a Search Director for LOIS L. LINDAUER SEARCHES.

Starting her career as a Program Director at Family Continuity Programs, Inc., a non-profit mental health organization with over ten chapters, Lisa performed all hiring and staff training duties, eventually leading to her promotion as Human Resources Manager. She spent the next eight years recruiting, hiring, training, and managing benefits for over 300 employees. From there, she was recruited to the post of Manager of Human Resources for Chancellor-Beacon Academies, where she was responsible for personnel oversight and talent recruitment for over 20 charter schools across the country.

Lisa then served as Director of Recruitment and Training for the Northeast Affiliate of the American Heart Association. Her responsibilities included the recruitment, training and on-boarding of over 200 development and professional employees across six states. In this role, Lisa honed her skill of matching the right candidate with the right position and many of her placements remain with the organization today.

Working with an array of nonprofit clients, she has placed high caliber fundraising professionals in leading institutions across the United States. Her clients include: Colby College, Partners in Health, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Wide Horizons for Children, WGBH (3 searches), University of Oregon (7 searches), Pro Mujer, Penn State University Hershey Medical Center, Wildlife Conservation Society, University of Rochester (5 searches), Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (2 searches), International Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (IOCD), Union of Concerned Scientists, Littleton Regional Hospital and Harvard University.

Lisa enjoys recruitment “Because each client comes to the table looking for a unique development individual to fulfill a certain role. My role is to listen to the client and then carefully screen each candidate, ultimately making a perfect match at the end of the search.”

Lisa is a graduate of Boston College with a degree in Psychology.
