Lisa has had her foot in both sides of the health management industry — workers’ compensation and integrated health management — for more than eighteen years, creating and consulting on effective cost containment solutions for major corporations like Meredith, Macy’s, EMC Insurance, Caesars Corporation, Winnebago and dozens more. She began her career in the workers’ compensation industry with a large national bill review and case management company in 1998. By 2004 she was the co- owner of a thriving workers’ compensation services company that provided consulting and program development on bill review and additional cost containment services for small to very large size companies in various industries around the country. The company was sold in 2008.

She then shifted her focus to the prevention side of cost containment, joining an innovative health management company, Health Solutions, LLC, as co-owner and Vice President. Health Solutions provides exceptional corporate health and wellness consulting and programming for employers around the country. Her clients achieved documented results of incredible improvements of employees and spouses health and signcificant cost reductions for the employer.

Realizing how connected workers’ compensation and health management are, she founded Splashlight in 2011 to provide the strategic breakthrough that was missing for employers to enhance their employees’ quality of life, reduce claims costs, and improve their bottom line. The company has a strong and loyal clientele including 700 municipalities and 80 counties in Iowa, Winnebago Industries, insurance companies and TPA’s.

Lisa was named the 2014 Iowa Women of Innovation Entrepreneur of the Year. She grew up in the Des Moines area and keeps her life active through her enjoyment of spending time with family and friends, volunteering at church, running, biking, golfing, boating and traveling..
