Women in WordPress

Speaking of Lisa… did you catch her on Women in WordPress, a bi-monthly podcast about women who work in WordPress? In the episode that features Lisa, she talks about how her career went from nursing to designing to becoming the COO of WebDevStudios. She also discusses empathy and how that plays a part in her role as a leader and website designer. It’s an enthralling interview, which you can watch at

This is a screen grab from the podcast Women in WP. The image features four screens. In three of the screens are the hosts: Amy Masson, Tracy Apps, and Angela Bowman. The fourth screen is of WDS COO Lisa Sabin-Wilson.
