STEMscopes Spotlight — Meet Lisa Webber, VP of Professional Services

Posted by Marissa Alonzo on November 24, 2015


Accelerate Learning has had an interesting past with hopes for an even more influential future in STEM education. Inside the walls of the corporate office you will find staff working on many different projects at any given time. One of those staff members is the Vice President of Professional Services, Lisa Webber.

Lisa joined the staff in 2012, but she had been active in the inception and development of the curriculum well before that time.
