Lisa graduated from Bryant University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration majoring in Marketing Communication. Unknowingly she would find her true passion in the health science world after five years of perusing her creative dreams in the advertising industry. In a twist of fate, not long after securing her job at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in the Center for Regenerative Medicine (CRM) under Dr. David Scadden in 2010, she was diagnosed with a rare bone tumor called Giant Cell. Her life and work world became one. Her interest in the lab grew as Dr. Scadden and several of his talented post-docs presented, published and incorporated their discoveries relating to cell differentiation. She was able to carry over her personal and advertising experience to the CRM. Lisa went from working on national campaigns and events to global health issues and Center donor relations.
As a Boston native, Lisa cannot stop talking about her love for the city and exploring all that it has to offer. After her first real estate purchase she realized she had a kin interest in Real Estate and went back to school to obtain her license through the Greater Boston Real Estate Board in 2007. Several personal sales later, she has lived throughout the North and South Shores of Boston. She incorporates her advertising background throughout her Real Estate practice helping many with both the buying and selling process.
Lisa’s experiences extend beyond the business world. After surgeries, her new passion has become research and patient care. Lisa is a striver, with a rebuilt femur and an astute surgical plan developed by the MGH Orthopedic Oncology & MGH CRM departments consisting of regeneration of donor bone. Her appreciation extends beyond the world of science to those behind it and has built an amazing partnership within MGH and the Harvard University communities through Dr. Scadden. Lisa, a life enthusiast, has returned to physically activities she previously enjoyed thanks to the combined efforts of Spaulding Rehabilitation and the MGH Palliative Care department. She is currently going through patient care training with the MGH Palliative Care Volunteer program and is looking forward to giving back to those who need encouragement as she once did. The MGH CRM Scadden Lab is a wonderful home base for her and she is enthusiastic to participate in the future growth of the Scadden Lab and the Center.
