Lisa a hidden gem of a resource and a groundbreaking leader in her field of specialty. Her entire focus is on navigating the incredibly confusing and emotionally loaded waters of maternity leave & return to work post-baby in a way that empowers working parents and parents-to-be. She is able to specifically advise on a case-by-case basis as to what exactly is available under the law to each parent, male or female, who wants to take time to bond with a new child. More importantly, she is able to help clients with strategy on utilizing available benefits and still coming out ahead both personally and professionally. Anyone who has dealt with taking a leave from work will understand how delicate the situation can sometimes be, regardless of what benefits exist 'on paper'. In my opinion any consultation with Lisa is well worth her fees (which are incredibly reasonable) since it can truly reduce the stress involved with managing those affairs as well as greatly improve their outcome.
