For over 30 years Lisa has been actively involved in the irrigation industry. Lisa received her degree in Horticulture at Kirkwood College. In 1984 she was introduced to the irrigation design division with both commercial and residential responsibilities while working at a nursery/garden center. Lisa started designing residential/commercial systems for an independent installer in the Quad Cities before moving into a distributor branch coordination position for an irrigation company in Des Moines and Minneapolis. In house working relationships with suppliers and customers has given Lisa the ability to communicate throughout the entire irrigation project. She keeps current with new irrigation options by actively participating in meetings and manufacturers seminars. Lisa enjoys being involved in irrigation projects, as her passion for the outdoor environment continues.
