After breaking out of the corporate world more than 15 years ago to work directly with her husband (internationally recognized nutrition expert, Lucho Crisalle) as the marketing arm of their company: Exercise & Nutrition Works, Inc.
While Lucho developed the first and one of the most highly recognized nutrition certification programs on the market (the CEU accredited Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist home study program) and the highly acclaimed, Online What Works Custom Nutrition Software, Lisa helped bring these specialized products to the market, ultimately securing contracts with such corporations as Gold’s Gym International and Max Muscle Incorporated.
