OFFICE MANAGER & EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT
Nobody gets things done like Larisa. She will find a way, work it out, and make it happen.
With 25 years experience working for businesses big, small and start-up, Larisa knows the tech industry and what’s involved in building a company. She has a strong passion for excellent customer service, a fierce sense of loyalty, and a unique ability to balance wearing numerous hats.
Larisa started out working in sales at WordPerfect Corporation shortly after high school. She went on to hold positions at Novell, Inc. as an Executive Assistant, a Marketing/Trade show Coordinator, and a Project Manager for Research and Development. She was asked to join a small team that launched Novonyx, a joint venture between Novell and Netscape. There, she helped to grow the company to over 80 employees before Novell pulled it back in as a business unit. At Xactware and Verisk, she supported Jim Loveland’s executive team, handling administrative needs, vendor and customer relations, company events and many aspects of day-to-day operations.
Beyond that, she’s been a PTA powerhouse, started a reading program at her local elementary school, and with her husband Ryan successfully launched 2 great kids. Larisa enjoys watching football and baseball, running, reading and having Sunday dinners with the family. She recently took up golf so she can join Ryan on the greens.
