Lisa Zarate

She's not in Kansas anymore! Lisa just moved to the big city from Bonner Springs, KS in search of her first job post graduation. She's thrilled to have found it at Patch Media Corporation. Putting her superb organizational skills to work, she manages Patch's headquarters in Soho and helps support field employees across the US. She graduated from the University of Kansas in December 09 with a BS in Journalism, emphasis in Strategic Communication.

Given her alma mater and the fact that she is a hard core sports fan, she spends much of her time cheering the Kansas Jayhawks on to victory, especially during March Madness, her favorite time of year. The words "Rock Chalk Jayhawk" are known to come out of her mouth on a regular basis. When she's not watching basketball or football games, she can be found hanging out in her Brooklyn neighborhood, enjoying Happy Hour at a local bar, or skyping with her family back home.

A true Midwesterner, she loves backyard barbeques, but given her Mexican heritage, her favorite food is chicken mole with a margarita on the side. Lisa's obsessions are traveling, her niece, Audrina, and nephews, Jaxson and Carson.
