Lisa Shaw, Executive Director, Publishing and Professional Learning Group

Lisa is the Executive Director of the Publishing and Professional Learning Group, guiding the broad-reaching professional development book and digital program and committed to expanding Corwin’s service to our teachers, teacher leaders, educational administrators, and whole institutions. Lisa has been in academic and educational publishing for more than 15 years, beginning her career with SAGE Publications, Corwin’s parent company focused on higher education books, journals, and reference works. She has held various managerial positions in production, journals acquisitions, and book acquisitions, including heading up SAGE’s hallmark programs in Research Methods, Evaluation, and Business and Management. Her work in Education spans managing and acquiring academic journals as well as developing K-12 textbooks, work she undertook as Executive Editor for McGraw-Hill. 

Lisa is a Southern California native who did not stray far for her education. She earned her BA in English from the University of California, Los Angeles and her MBA with emphasis in Management and Organizational Behavior from California Lutheran University. She is currently pursuing her EdD in Organizational Leadership from the University of LaVerne. Her publishing career has led her to pick up various hobbies and activities along the way: running (the easiest way to get to know a city when traveling), making wine (all good book ideas have been developed over a meal…served with wine), caring for her dachshunds (98.5% of publishers are dog-lovers), and perhaps her greatest acquisition yet, meeting and marrying her husband, who is also in publishing.
