Even as a little girl, Lisa Dadd always planned to be a doctor, but she always had an entrepreneurial itch. In university, she realized she was much more interested in knowing about the science of people rather than just science, so she changed her major. But when she didn’t get into medical school, the Niagara Falls native felt somewhat lost. She decided to continue on to get her graduate degree in sports medicine, and later landing a job in the pharmaceutical industry, where she had a very successful career.
But as Lisa continued to rise in her corporate sales and marketing position, she found herself unfulfilled with every new promotion during her 15 years in the industry. Eventually, she gave into her burning desire to become an entrepreneur, to “find her fabulous” and to teach her clients how to do the same.
