Lisa is a co-founder of The Maren Group. She is an experienced entrepreneur with a background in strategic and crisis communications, media relations, and marketing. Her successful ventures include two award-winning children's entertainment companies and a political and issue advocacy New Media consultancy. Lisa has consulted and provided media relations and new media strategy for dozens of companies and organizations; gubernatorial and US Senatorial campaigns; and statewide policy initiatives.


At The Maren Group, Lisa specializes in strategic planning and communications for individual and private sector clients, investigations and best practices for risk mitigation, as well as drawing on her personal experience to guide clients who are grappling with sexual harassment and assault.


Lisa developed her voice as a women's advocate early as a civilian student at Norwich University, the country's old private military academy, from which she graduated cum laude. As one of a handful of women in each class, she developed perspectives invaluable both personally and professionally. Today, she writes and speaks with an emphasis on issues of equality, opportunity, and safety for women. Her perspectives and writing appear in a range of media, from NPR Morning Edition and PBS News Hour to The Daily Beast and USA Today; she also writes a monthly column on gender and equality issues for her local newspaper, The Stowe Reporter.


Lisa is the ridiculously-proud mother of two teenaged sons who have grown into young men who speak up and speak out. In July 2017, Lisa was appointed to the Vermont Commission on Women by Governor Phil Scott and is a member of its Health, Safety, and Civil Rights Committee. She serves on the Board of Trustees for the Stowe Education Fund, and The Clarina Howard Nichols Center which serves survivors of domestic violence and their families.
