I'm Lisa and I’m the Marketing Manager at BINGO. I completed a Bachelor of Commerce in 2019 at the University of New South Wales majoring in Marketing. A little fun fact about me is that my parents are BIG Elvis fans, so fittingly I’m named after Lisa-Marie Presley. I even had the “privilege” of visiting Graceland in Memphis!
