For this week's employee highlight, meet Lisa Leahy!
Lisa is a new Senior Project Manager on Tilson's Utilities Consulting team based out of Tilson's Portland, Maine headquarters. She is responsible for supporting broadband projects in the utilities space, as well as state and local initiatives to expand broadband access to underserved areas to support telework, distance learning, and telehealth.⠀
As a newer member of our team, Lisa brings great knowledge from her years of experience as the Program Director of Maine’s broadband office, where she worked to expand broadband access statewide and had the opportunity to work closely with Tilson. ⠀
“Working at Tilson makes me feel like the teacher put me in the room with all the smart kids. The depth of industry knowledge, commitment to doing the job well and caliber of my colleagues is amazing,” she said. “I learn something new in every meeting. The dedication to the client and the team shines through every day.”⠀
Outside of work, Lisa enjoys mushroom hunting with her goldendoodle Layla, cooking, and playing foosball ("yes, it is sport and I am that good"). A Minnesota native, she roots for the Vikings and as a Mainer for 26 years, she also cheers on the Patriots and enjoys cooking for the games as much as watching them. Her specialty is homemade buttermilk pancakes with peanut butter and real maple syrup.⠀
Thank you, Lisa, for your hard work and expertise! We're happy to have you on the team!⠀
