Previously, Lisa worked for 23 years in the chemical processing industry. She held leadership positions in process engineering, process development, continuous improvement and quality. Her passion for process control was born from first-hand experience seeing run-away reactions of poly-methyl methacrylate, which not only ruined acrylic castings but also created a safety hazard for anyone nearby. The criticality of controlling chemical reactions has influenced her views, leading to a career in Quality.
