Lisa Wang came to KUOW as a result of a serendipitous “driveway” moment in 2016. One morning, after hearing half of a KUOW story on Chinook Jargon while driving in her car, Lisa went searching for the rest and visited KUOW.org for the first time. While there, she clicked from story to story, then webpage to webpage until she eventually found herself looking at KUOW’s jobs page and saw a listing for an Events Manager. One job application later and the rest was history.
As Events Manager, Lisa focuses on connecting KUOW directly to audiences live and in-person. Lisa loves to collaborate and works closely with KUOW’s Marketing, Community Engagement, Development and Business Support teams to make KUOW Events shine.
In her spare time, Lisa enjoys singing with The Esoterics, listening to Hidden Brain and playing a ridiculous number of board games.

KUOW’s Ask A series is three years old now. The conversations we host bridge cultural, political and philosophical divides.
