Lisa Endicott is a self-made, serial entrepreneur and communications expert whose career spans the spectrum of consumer brands, arts and entertainment, journalism, and public relations.
Endicott created a successful special events company, record label and public relations firm before she was 25. Her vision is to empower all women to be self sufficient and set them up in lifelong, fulfilling careers.
