Lisa A. Henrie, HR/PR et. al.
Leese, as she is known to her close friends, is the welcomed gal influence to this brewing team. A native of Pittsburgh, PA, "Iron City", home of the Steelers Football 6 Super Bowl winners, Leese founded her own HR/PR consulting firm, Market Design Strategies, LLC, in 2003 in Utah where she currently resides. Her firm provides a broad range of marketing and public relations, social media, and human resources solutions to small to medium sized businesses in both the private and public sectors. She will be giving a voice to Rule G in the marketplace and strengthening the Rule G Brand by creating content for social media platforms, website, while also facilitating events and community and media relations. She will be involved in recruiting and employee relations along with merchandising.
Lisa met Ralph Rapa in 1983 through sister and brother college orientation events: She at Seton Hill College (now University), Greensburg, PA and he at St. Vincent's College, Latrobe, PA - also home to Rolling Rock beer. You could say beer and trains were and are the foundation of their friendship. (She owns vintage Lionel HO and newer G Scale train sets which she proudly displays and runs each Christmas).
Lisa holds a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology with an emphasis on Public and Interpersonal Communications, Pennsylvania State University extension. She earned an HR Certification at the University of Utah. From 2003-2015, she was the Director of Public and Community Relations for the Magna, Utah-Yuzawa, Japan Sister City Program. She also founded the 911 Annual Memorial Remembrance Event for her community and volunteers as the PR director and webmaster for the Annual Our Lady of Lourdes Spaghetti Dinner now in its 90th year! Lisa looks forward to contributing her experience, quirky, sometimes cheesy sense of humor to Rule G Brewing Co and is honored to working with such a wonderful team.
Lisa has 4 children: Robert and Jeff, who reside in California and work at Coppola Wines, and two toddlers, her 15 yr old Chihuahua, Charger and 4 yr old white, green eyed cat, Marshmallow.
