Lisa Olson is highly experienced in fine sewing and design. Her interest began as a young girl when she began sewing and designing clothes for her Barbie dolls. In 1985, Lisa pursued a Bachelor of Science degree in Apparel and Textiles.
During this time, she worked numerous jobs that would further her sewing skills. These jobs included sewing in bridal wear as well as working as a professional tailor in men’s fine apparel. Later, Lisa continued her adventure working in a couture sewing business in Europe. Upon her return to the United States in 1992, Lisa wanted to expand her career adventure by pursuing a Master’s Degree in Adult Education as well as obtaining an education for secondary teaching in Family and Consumer Science. In 1994, her career path split in two. She continued to design apparel periodically on the side while working full time in Instructional Systems Design. In 2004, Lisa began teaching as an adjunct faculty instructor in Fashion Design at Pima Community College. Today, Lisa continues to work full time in the field of Instructional Systems Design with an east coast based company as well as teaching fashion design at PCC. Lisa enjoys putting the two fields together to enhance student’s educational experiences in Fashion Design.
