is building that bridge!....
After a successful career in publishing –including head of Disney’s Global Children’s Book division,Editor-In-Chief at Harper Collins Publishers, President of Scholastic Trade and Book Fair division and founder of Fourth Story Media, Lisa made the leap into the nonprofit world five years ago, becoming President of Classroom, Inc. Her organization offers an innovative approach to literacy and learning for adolescents and educators in low-income communities.
