Lissette holds a Bachelors degree in Interior Design from the Ringling College of Art and Design. Over the years, she has gravitated to the business and marketing side of the architecture and design industry, after running her own freelance business for 7 years. She now serves as the Marketing Manager for the Sweet Sparkman office.
Originally from Puerto Rico, Lissette grew up in Pennsylvania and moved to Sarasota in 2007 to pursue her education at Ringling. She quickly fell in love with the rich arts culture and architectural history of Sarasota and, of course, the perfect weather and pristine beaches, and she decided to make the move permanent after graduation. Besides architecture and design, her interests are socializing, cooking, boating, traveling, cars, and spending time with her husband, Oscar, and her two long-haired dachshunds, Marco and Polo. She believes that everything can be solved over a delicious meal and a good bottle of wine.
