Lisa joined HBI in January, 2009 as a Senior Project Manager.  She began her work in project management in 1989 at Keen Development Corporation, which specialized in the adaptive re-use of historic buildings to mixed-income housing.   Her work at Keen included the development of West End Place, 183 units of cooperative, mixed-income housing in the former West End of Boston.  She also managed the development of 300 Summer Street, a 48 unit conversion of a former warehouse into artist live/work lofts, gallery space and a cafe for the Fort Point Arts Community, and the Payne Elevator building in Cambridge, which was converted to 18 artist condominiums.  After spending a year in Australia, in 2000 Lisa joined the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston to oversee the transformation of a former industrial building in Chelsea to the new Jordan Boys & Girls Club.  She stayed with the organization until 2007 to manage the renovation of the Charlestown club and the renovation and expansion of the Roxbury and Dorchester clubs.  After leaving the Boys & Girls Clubs, Lisa worked on the design and construction planning for the Salvation Army’s Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center in the Uphams/Dudley neighborhood of Dorchester.
