What is Virtual Girls’ Night Out?
We all want to spend more time chatting with our girlfriends, but sometimes life is just too busy to get those girls’ nights out scheduled regularly. That’s why Career Girl Network is bringing you Virtual Girls’ Night Out. So put on those pajamas, grab a bowl of popcorn, and settle in while our CEO, writers, and partners talk with incredible guests every other week.

ABOUT LISA, IN HER OWN WORDS:
My name is Lisa May Simpson. I partner with individuals and organizations who want to do more of what really matters. I’m an actor and a mother with more than a decade of nonprofit management experience under my belt, most of it working with small to midsize organizations.
My specialties include program development, evaluation, strategic planning, and volunteer management. People tell me I have a knack for helping disparate groups reach fruitful and logical conclusions. (My secret: listening for the possibilities and playing to people’s strengths.)
I most recently served as deputy director at Arts Alliance Illinois, having risen through a variety of roles from office manager to membership and development director, to program director over the course of eight years. This variety of professional roles allowed me to discover my true passion: helping good people do great work. I started this coaching and consulting business in order to spend more time doing just that.
I received my training as a coach at Coach U, which is accredited by the International Coach Federation. I’m an ICF member and subscribe to their code of ethics.
I live on Chicago’s north side with my husband and daughter where I enjoy making jam and playing the ukulele, though generally not at the same time.
