Welcome!  Thank you for checking out my blog. My name is Lisa Gubernick. I have been working in the business world for the past twenty years and I truly enjoy many aspects of the career that I have built.  I lead a team that drives revenue growth, analyzes business financial performance and ensures client satisfaction.  I am also a wife and mother of two.  Outside of those responsibilities, I take every opportunity I can to learn and to create.
