A native of Seattle, Lisa joined the Pike Place Market Foundation Board when she returned to Seattle after studying and working on the east coast, mid-west and abroad because she thinks that nothing epitomizes what is great about the city as much as the Pike Place Market.
Lisa graduated magna cum laude from Yale University, received a masters in economics from Cambridge University and earned an MBA at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. She began her career as a strategy consultant at Bain & Co. in Boston and then worked in the apparel industry in New York City. She worked as Director of Strategy at RR Donnelley in Chicago before returning to Seattle.
Lisa’s husband, Michael Gamsky, is an attorney specializing in structured finance. They have one daughter in high school who has been volunteering with Lisa at the Pike Market Preschool since she was ten.
