As VP of Administration and Finance, Lisa Nelson brings over 20 years of administrative and financial experience to the Spectrum team. As a real estate and business entrepreneur, she has a diverse background in management and contracts, which included ownership of her own intellectual property company for over 18 years.
Upon the successful marketing and sale of that business, Lisa expanded her capabilities by obtaining further degrees in benefit administration, health insurance and annuities. With that experience and education, she easily mastered government contracting requirements. Her ease of coordinating large scale, multi-faceted projects translated exceptionally well to the many tasks she supervises today at Spectrum.
