Hi, my name is Lisa Gardner and I am a Mechanical Engineer at Freeform Future, based in Hawthorne, CA. I also am a certified ski instructor through the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA).
During my Master's degree at Stanford University, I became involved with entrepreneurship through the Threshold Venture Fellows program and I served as a teaching assistant in the Product Relation Lab, helping students bring their ideas from conception to reality. I received my undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from Penn State University and spent my last semester "studying abroad" at MIT. My passions include helping mentor women in STEM, designing intuitive products with a high social impact, and getting my hands dirty in the shop.
The one constant throughout my life has been learning new things and sharing that knowledge with others. I'm currently looking for my next way to give back!
