My name is Lisa Criscera and I am the co-owner and founder of L.C. Solutions, LLC. I thought it was important to tell you a little bit about myself so that you can learn the background of my company.
I didn’t expect you to hire us based on this awesome website…
Lisa is a young and energetic entrepreneur. She has always been passionate about helping others and prides herself on building meaningful relationships with her clients. Lisa finds true joy in her marketing and event planning work as she guides and supports others, enabling them to achieve their goals for their business or event.
Lisa began her journey at the age of 15 working as a catering waitress. It was immediately evident that Lisa would be a self-starting multi-tasker as she not only held a job but also was a starter on the Softball, Basketball and Tennis teams as well as a key player on (former) Sacred Heart High School’s Mock Trial team as a freshman. With straight A’s, she was also the President of the National Honor Society. Lisa certainly enjoys bring busy and thrives on a challenge. She is a true leader, a thinker and most importantly…an achiever.
Lisa attended college at the University of Scranton and graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2006 as the Valedictorian of the Kania School of Management. She attained a dual degree in International Business and Spanish. Hard work and experience in the hospitality industry paid off as Lisa was fortunate to immediately land a job as a catering manager for a large hospitality company in Northeast PA. She stayed with the company for almost 6 years and eventually worked her way up to become the General Manager of a full service hotel and convention center.
Lisa continued her career in hospitality holding various upper level management positions such as Director of Food and Beverage, General Manager and Director of Sales in both PA and NY. She gained much knowledge and insight about management, human resources, marketing, accounting and most importantly, customer satisfaction.
In June 2014, Lisa decided that she wanted more and was ready to move to the next level in her career. With the help of the University of Scranton Small Business Development Center as well as the SCORE mentoring program, Lisa and her fiancé James were able to launch L.C. Solutions, LLC. Lisa’s SCORE Mentor, Norm Kelly, provided L.C. Solutions with advice, guidance and real life experience. SCORE provided tools for a fully stocked toolbox encompassing all aspects of business from accounting and revenue management to marketing and customer satisfaction.
L.C. Solutions provides businesses with social media guidance, public relations assistance and marketing support in order to grow revenue, maximize exposure and build relationships with customers to ensure loyalty. L.C. Solutions can also provide management and/or employee guidance and training to ensure a strong operational foundation and stellar sales team.
L.C. Solutions boasts a combined 36 years of experience in the wedding and hospitality industry thus giving their team impeccable event planning and coordination skills. From weddings and graduations to conventions and fundraisers, L.C. Solutions has the knowledge and expertise to plan and coordinate ANY type of event.
Lisa is also very passionate about volunteering and giving back to the community that has shaped who she is today. She is a proud member of the UNICO National Service Organization – Carbondale Chapter where she uses her event planning and marketing talents to plan and organize fundraisers throughout the year. Lisa is also the group leader of Women to Women: THRIVE (a women’s networking and community outreach group held under the umbrella of the Greater Carbondale Chamber of Commerce), Co-founder and Co-Director of It’s Ruff Without a Roof dog rescue based in Union Dale, PA and Board Member of the Northeast PA Networkers.
Lisa lives in Carbondale, PA with her amazing fiancé James Conarton, their very well behaved Jack Russel Terrier, Sally Pumpkin, a super ferocious 13 pound Italian Greyhound, Vincenzo Silvio and various other pups that they foster for IRWAR rescue. Lisa and James enjoy spending time with their friends and family as well as hiking, fishing, food/wine/craft beer tasting and ride their motorcycle. Their wedding date is set for July 1, 2017 and should be an epic celebration!
So to wrap it up…the answer is…YES!!! One day Lisa woke up and said…
“I think I’m going to start my own company so that I can do what I love for the rest of my life.”
And she did….And here we are….
Welcome to L.C. Solutions.
Take risks, strive to be different and don’t sweat the small stuff.
