Lisa is a two-time graduate of Mason, receiving her undergraduate degree in 1997 and her JD in 2002.
Working for both the Office of the US Trade Representative and the Department of Commerce, Lisa has extensive experience working with U.S. companies operating in China and government officials on high-level bilateral trade negotiations, including the Strategic and Economic Dialogue (S&ED) and the Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade (JCCT).

During her talk, Lisa will share with us both her experience at Mason and her unique understanding of US-China bilateral trade relations.
