Lady Boss :: Lisa Yoder of Lisli Blog

We are so excited that Lisa Yoder from Lisli will be hosting May's Lady Boss!! SK met Lisa several years ago at a food blogger event and totally hit it off. It's been great to have her in our lives and her support has been amazing over the years. Read a little bit about what makes her tick as a Lady Boss and make sure to register for the event she's hosting at her home right here!

Let's take a minute to get to know behind-the-scenes Lisa better:

Q: Coffee or tea?
A: Coffee! .... or Bourbon. 

Q: What's your guilty pleasure?
A:  Hmm. I'm not sure if I believe in guilty pleasures. If it brings me joy and isn't destructive, what's to feel guilty about? I'm generally a pretty anxious and guilt-ridden person, so I fight feeling guilty for liking what I like.

Q: Time-suck?
A: Twitter and Instagram. 

Q: What's your go-to quick weeknight meal?
A: Taco salad or homemade pizza.

Q: What are you listening to lately?
A: Sufjan Stevens, Iron and Wine, and Being Boss podcast.

Q: Who are you crushing on?
A: No one specific, but women who build and speak and write and share.

And now a little about what makes Lisa a Lady Boss:

Q: What do you do?
A: Web development! I work full time as a front-end developer for Urban Outfitters, and I have a pretty steady stream of freelance work, which I really enjoy. I also have a personal/lifestyle blog where I write about food, travel, work, and ideas or thoughts I get stuck on.

Q: Tell us about a project you recently wrapped.
A: I recently gave a talk at the Philly Women in Tech Summit about the text editor that I use to write code. It was a good opportunity to learn more about the tools I use, and then package that up to share with others. I've taken a little break from client work, but I'm excited to be picking more up soon. I'm also in the throes of overhauling my own site.

Q:What makes you go to work each day?
A:  I love that I'm never done learning. There's no way to get bored in this field. It's really inspiring to know that if I have an idea, I can figure out how to build it and bring it into reality.

Q: What made you decide to host a Lady Boss?
A: I was so excited about the concept! Back when SZ was organizing the first informal event, I reached out to ask about starting one in Philly, or hosting one here for those of us who couldn't make it out to the 'burbs on a weeknight. I'm looking forward to meeting and getting to know other local women who are working on really interesting things.
