During her tenure with the Patrol, Lisa served in various positions throughout the State of Ohio. In her final position with the organization, she was promoted to the rank of major and commanded the Patrol's Office of Finance and Logistics Services. In that position, she and her staff oversaw the finance, fleet, facility, and procurement needs for the entire division. She also served on the Patrol's 11-member senior staff-assisting with the development of policy, as well as leading, guiding, and directing the overall operations of the organization. She was and remains the highest-ranking female officer to serve with the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

She also serves as an adjunct instructor, teaching law enforcement technology courses at a local university.
Lisa is an advocate for victims of impaired drivers and routinely volunteers to speak at civic organizations, driver's education classes, and has offered her services to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).
