About Lisa Alexander
Lisa Alexander (@thatnaturalisa) joins us on the PDX Black Rose Podcast for great conversation about traveling and branching out of your comfort zone. Lisa Alexander has an enthusiasm for people. There is an openness and an encouraging spirit that accompanies her tone. You could say this isa part of what led her to hospitality and Human Resources. The other part...she isn’t afraid of adventure and trying new things. Originally fromPortland, Alexander ventured across the country to attend HowardUniversity where she studied hospitality and jumped at the chance to study language in Japan.In Japan, Alexander says her learning increased significantly, as she was made to feel right at home by her host mother. Upon returning to school,Alexander was offered a job on the spot from Disney at a recruiting event where she would go on to manage the German Pavilion of restaurants atDisney in Florida. Alexander says that her time in Japan as well as her love of languages was a big part of being chosen for the position. But even more so, Alexander attributes her parents with exposing her and her siblings to so many opportunities growing up.
