Lisa Vega

In her own words… 

 “Growing up as a child, I always separated my Halloween candy into small piles of matching colors, shapes and sizes.  This obsessive compulsive behavior has helped to mold me into the WICT Branding Officer I have become today!  Prior to obsessing over the WICT brand, I was an account manager at a strategic advertising agency, but began my career in television and video production.   

When not at WICT, I enjoy spending time instructing my husband and five-year old daughter on the correct way to assemble and wear pop bead necklaces using only matching and coordinating beads.” 

Best advice ever heard:
"Keep your old love letters. Throw away your old bank statements."

Ideal vacation:
"Watching my daughter build sand castles next to the crystal blue Caribbean ocean. The resort would have plenty of fun activities and fancy restaurants that my husband and I could enjoy."

Inspiring wisdom:
"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
