Serving as our IT Manager/Tech Support, Lisa Waechter has been an extremely valuable member of the Food Safety Market team since January 2015. In her position, Lisa acts as the organization’s second level of tech support, handling tech-related issues that other agents can’t.

Since she joined the team, Lisa has kept the FSM website alive by building interactive pages, sending news blasts out to subscribers, posting food safety blogs, and more.

Her role is constantly evolving, with Lisa eagerly taking on new roles that have seen her become responsible for all internal tech support within the FSM office, as well as establishing and enforcing company policies, procedures, and processes. Lisa brings decades of technical support experience to her role at FSM, helping customers better understand the problems they experience.
Prior to joining the FSM team, Lisa earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science from York University in Toronto, Ontario. After graduating, she worked in software development within corporate offices, becoming a nationally certified coach in the 1990’s and serving as a coach and personal trainer before transitioning into sports and recreation in the early 2000’s. Outside of the office, Lisa, her husband, and their two young boys are involved in holistic farm management, running Double D Pastures in Collingwood, Ontario.
