“Lisa is exactly the kind of person everyone wishes they had for a colleague; positive, smart, reliable, flexible, and passionate about her work. When someone asks for help, she’s always the first person to volunteer. She’s a consummate teacher and her insights and dedication have made her a tremendous asset on our instructional design team.”
—Meredith Farkas, Assistant Professor, Social Sciences Librarian, and General Education Instruction Coordinator, Portland State University
“I first met Lisa when she was a student in a web development and information architecture class that I teach. Pretty quickly I realized that Lisa was the kind of student that makes teaching worthwhile and the kind of student that makes it clear that there are smart critical and forward thinkers going into the education/library profession. Lisa excelled in the class and we have kept in touch about work and projects since she graduated from library school. In that time I’ve seen Lisa facilitate projects for students in academic institutions and I’ve seen her continue to learn and develop skills as an educational professional. Lisa doesn’t just say, ‘OK, I’m done, no need to learn more.’ She keeps learning and testing and thinking in order to do what she does even more successfully. She’s a great asset to the profession.”
—Linda Braun, Educational Technology Consultant and Project Manager, LEO Online.

“Sharp. Organized. Hardworking. Graceful with both the written word , new technologies, and managing the workflows of wildly different acquisitions editors at a trade publishing house: you must be talking about Lisa Molinelli. Imagine the quiet, self-assured charm of Audrey Hepburn and the fierce attention to detail and follow through of CSI’s finest and you’re beginning to understand the unique blend of diplomacy, creativity, and zest for getting everything right that marks anything that Lisa does. Whether working with intransigent writers who try to weasel just one more day on a deadline to managing her own book projects, Lisa is both an enthusiastic team player and an adept, one-on-one negotiator. Many authors have her to thank for helping them hit the finish line.”
—Jill Rothenberg, Editor, Geological Society of America and Instructor, mediabistro.com
