What Others Say

OWEN CLAY, OPERATIONS MANAGER, SHELBURNE FARMS

“Lisa was brilliant, clarifying what our needs really were for each problem and quickly providing an elegant solution for each with comprehensible explanation of what the tool (Excel based for these) was doing and how to run it. None of what Lisa has done is magic, but it seems like it. We now have key information at our fingertips that is accurate and immediate; and making updated runs is a piece of cake.”

 LAURA KRAHN, MANAGER OF TECHNICAL DELIVERY, C2 – COMPETITIVE COMPUTING

“ Lisa is one of the most versatile technologists I’ve ever worked with. She brings an analytical mind to all the data-based projects and initiatives she works on, and has that keen sense of how to streamline processes wherever, and whenever she can.”

PAM LINNE, FORMER SALES OPERATIONS SPECIALIST, LANE PRESS

“ Lisa Merrill is brilliant! What a shinning star. If you need data pulled from software - she’ll make it happen. I was honored to work with Lisa at Lane Press where she patiently figured out how to handle all of my out-of-the-box requests. Lisa is a team player, great listener, problem-solver and her data and people skills help improve processes and create production efficiencies. Lisa is a valuable asset to any team!”
