Lisa Chipetine

President and Founder

Lisa Chipetine has been in love with “big cities” since she was 7 years old and at 18, got on an airplane and came to New York City – and never left.  Lisa is a multi-faceted entrepreneur who has spent the last twenty years managing technology projects for Fortune 500 companies and being the ultimate “Cat Mommy”.  She is passionate about literacy, technology, travel and animals, and is always looking for ways to utilize technology to satisfy a social need.  Lisa sidelines as a contemporary quilt artist, and gives back through the Pilots ‘n Paws program, as well as her own yearly charity “Santa Kitties”, where she delivers toys and treats to shelters in the New York area.  Over the past twenty years, she has traveled the world, been a “road warrior” and (most importantly) has been “the greatest aunt on the planet” according to her nieces and nephews.
