Lisa Kipps-Brown started Glerin Business Resources in 1996 in Jacksonville, Florida. She was a CPA who was bored with accounting, and intrigued with the idea of being able to use her business experience in a more creative way. Web development was the perfect fit and she ditched accounting to concentrate on helping business owners use the web in innovative ways to increase revenues, improve efficiency, and reduce expenses.
Just in case you're interested, we're also SWaM-certified and woman-owned, and have over 13 years of experience working with Economic Development, Designated Main Street, and Tourism clients.

Let us introduce ourselves:

Lisa is a Business Reimagination Expert who specializes in working with service business owners to help them reimagine their business to reinvent their life, integrating web-based technologies that empower them to reach their goals.
After running her business while caring for her mother for 3.5 years in the end stages of Alzheimer's, she especially wants to help owners who may be facing difficult life changes.
