Lisa started with IWD as a designer and head of the Rental Division/Operations Manager. Lisa has been in the rental industry for nearly 20 years. She began her career as an Event Coordinator with Celeritas Technologies in Overland Park, KS, setting up Pipeline Training meetings in collaboration with the 811 program. After 10 years, she was approached by the owner of Grand Rental Station, which had two stores, one in Greenwood and one in Franklin and started as their Event Coordinator. After just one year with Grand Rental, she was able to obtain her CERP (Certified Event Rental Profession) certification through the American Rental Association. Grand Rental decided to close its doors in September of 2015. Lisa joined the IWD team shortly thereafter. In October of 2017, she was nominated as a Board Member of the ARA of Indiana, where she holds the office of Treasurer.
With the experience she had at Grand Rental, she was able to bring some of her large event clients with her to IWD, including University of Indianapolis, Autism Speaks, The City of Greenwood along with several catering clients including City BBQ and Grafton Peek. Her main focus in her rental experience has been with tents. She has had to learn several different county, city and state requirements based on the size of each of the tents that can be erected. Being the Event Coordinator at both rental stores also gave her the knowledge to work with several corporate clients, as well as small backyard parties.
