Lisa was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and moved to California in 1983. She signed on at Pine Ridge Winery in 1997, where she was Sales and Marketing Coordinator and the Nevada Sales Representative. In 2005, she joined Nancy Andrus Duckhorn at Nancy Andrus Associates, a marketing consultancy to Napa Valley wine brands. Lisa launched her own consulting business, Vie du Vin, in 2008 to continue working with existing clients and extend her services to new ones.
Lisa has been with Scarecrow since the inaugural release of the 2003 vintage. As Chief Operating Officer, she oversees day-to-day functioning of all aspects of the business. She enjoys that this keeps her in contact with people involved in every aspect of winemaking. She is a member of WWD, the professional women’s wine organization, and is an active volunteer for many Napa-based organizations and events. An avid fly fisher, she is most at home out doors, casting flies or working in her garden, where she relishes being able to taste and smell her way through the growth cycle.
