Risa not only cares about the work but the people associated with it. Her focus on collaboration and team-building has helped her foster long-term partnerships with internal and external teams. She is not only an inspiring leader but the glue that holds projects together. Her colleagues often request to work with her on critical challenges to observe and emulate her ability to develop authentic, trusting relationships with clients. A “foodie” at her core, if Risa isn’t driving new solutions for dynamic projects, she’s exploring new restaurants and learning about emerging cuisines.
