First as chief of operations, then as director of administrative services, as a consult-ant in an organizational development (OD) and evaluation and, finally, as the director of OD services.  Lise actively participated in the transformation of Le CLÉ from a centre for leadership in education of Ontario to the Canadian Centre for Leadership in Evaluation, Le CLÉ as it is known today.

Over the past few years, Lise has provided training, facilitation and coaching services to Francophone school board trustees, directors of education and senior staff on topics such as effective governance, ethical leadership, strategic planning, collaborative governance, parent and community engagement, senior staff performance appraisal, policy development, implementation and monitoring. 

Lise co-facilitated the Ministry of Education's Trustee Orientation Session held in Toronto in January, 2015. In 2015, Lise developed and facilitated a broad and inclusive consultation strategy for a Northern Ontario school board (trustees, board staff, parents, school staff, and community partners).
