Chief Executive Officer
With a passion to “be the change” and the faith that she could build a better way, Lisa left a career as a senior process safety engineer to explore digital technology as an enabling tool for safer chemical handling.
To achieve her goal, Lisa put together a team of curious, pragmatic but independent thinkers and incorporated Rillea Technologies Inc. Together Rillea’s team explored the possibility of developing digital tools that would take huge amounts of technical information and regulations and distill it into a web platform that could not only be customized by organization but provide clear, simple chemical-handling knowledge to workers from the C-Suite to the floor.
The result is SDS RiskAssist, an award-winning web platform that revolutionizes chemical safety.
