In eras past, economic success depended on creating networks that could shift people, merchandise and electric power as efficiently and as widely as possible. Today’s equivalent is broadband: the high-speed internet service that has become as vital a tool for producers and distributors of goods as it is for people plugging into all the social and cultural opportunities offered by the web. Easy access to cheap, fast internet services has become a facilitator of economic growth and a measure of economic performance.
Lisa Gonzalez has been a native Minnesotan since the day she set foot here in 1990. She is thrilled to be working on examining and advancing the concept of connectivity, an integral and expanding part of our economy and our quality of life, through community broadband.
Lisa's background includes freelance journalism, law, state politics, higher ed, crafting design, and her favorite role - being a parent. She has learned boatloads from each and every experience and is excited about this new adventure. Lisa and her two daughters live for camping, biking, and hanging out and share their home with a cat named Trixie.
