Lisa Reader

  • Accounts Payable

    As a young girl, while her friends dreamed of having grown-up adventures as astronauts and athletes, Lisa Reader wanted to become a nun. So it comes as no surprise that she takes delight in simple pleasures. “I really enjoy spending time with my kids and grandkids,” she says. “I enjoy a walk around the neighborhood with my husband or taking a ride together on our motorcycle.” Similarly, in her role as an Accounts Payable Specialist with Apollo Design, Lisa concentrates on what truly matters. Her colleagues value her talents for planning, organizing and staying focused on getting things done.

    Before joining Apollo in 2003, Lisa developed her no-nonsense work ethic as an administrative assistant at the Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce – that was her first job – and later at a Fortune 500 financial services company. She also worked out of her home for a while, straightening metal parts for a machine shop. It was just as unglamorous as it sounds, and illustrates the self-discipline and stick-to-itiveness that serves her so well at Apollo. If she has one weakness, it’s coffee. It’s the one thing she couldn’t live without, although she can be tempted with a sumptuous meal. “I love a nice steak dinner,” she admits.

    Cherishing her family time, she is rightfully proud of her two grown children. In the summer, she can be found poolside, relaxing, chatting and soaking up the sun. Lisa says the best advice she ever received is the familiar maxim: take time to smell the roses. She’s done just that.
