Our Vice President

Lisa Desmond, Executive Vice President
In the spring of 2012, Lisa joined DWI full-time, although she served on the board of DWI since 2000. Lisa brings a variety of skills and abilities and enthusiasm to DWI after spending the last 15 years in the creative service industry. She worked in management as an Art Director for a successful local craft manufacturing company, servicing both retail and wholesale clients and vendors nationally and internationally. From product development, through design implementation to the marketing of products, in print, online, and at tradeshows, she enjoyed the diversity and broad experience. Her seven years' experience as a creative service business owner of Redbone Creative further enhance her capabilities.

Lisa is ideally positioned to facilitate DWI's growth, and she is focused on business development in Sonoma, Marin and Napa counties. She understands the challenges a construction firm faces in today's climate.

As a long-term member and the 2011-2012 Vice President of Alliance Builders, a Santa Rosa chapter of Business Networkers International, Lisa interacted with the local business community for many years.

Lisa holds a BA in Communications Studies and has additional technical certificates that will be used to expand DWI's field to office communications.

Lisa's mother Dorothy had Multiple Sclerosis for over 40 years, and Lisa has been a co-captain and/or fundraiser for Team Little Lissie for the MS Waves to Wine bike ride for the past 6 years. She hopes to see a cure for the disease in her lifetime. As a person who watched what a devastating illness can go do, and after having a few health concerns of her own, Lisa is a strong proponent of living healthy by eating an organic, balanced diet. She feels blessed to live in such a nutritionally rich and diverse area, and enjoys working in her large organic garden. The beautiful area in which she lives also lends itself to great outdoor exercise via hiking and road cycling.
