Lisa Kipps-Brown

Lisa provides a unique combination of experience in business ownership and management, computer programming, and website and graphics design. She holds an Accounting degree from Virginia Tech and has over 20 years of experience in businesses of all sizes. Having owned three previous businesses enables her to view projects from the business owner's perspective in addition to the customer's. She started her first business when her kids were 4-months- and 24-monthsold,and the business grew so quickly that both she and her husband worked in it full time after just five months. In the 90's she published a sailboat guide that was sold online and in bookstores to customers on every continent in the world except Antarctica; in 1999 she developed an online searchable database of thousands of sailboat model specs as an adjunct to the guide and to begin moving the guide from a printed medium to digital. This was, and still is, the only guide and database of its kind in the world, and she later sold it to a .com in order to concentrate on website and digital media development. In addition to her entrepreneurial and website development experience, other experience includes US Controller of an international software company, Assistant Controller for an exclusive furniture manufacturer, and Internal Auditor for a bank. Lisa is on the Board of Directors of the Industrial Development Authority of Halifax County and is a member of the Southern Piedmont Technology Council, the Rural Broadband Technology Council, and the Last Mile Fiber Optic Initiative for Halifax. She passed the CPA exam in 1983 but is currently not practicing. Raised by her working mom and her blind musician father, she learned very early on the value of tenacity. She just doesn't know how to quit. Motto: Don't tell me I can't do something because I'll have to prove you wrong!
