Bio: Lisa Vanlerberghe, Class of 2002
Lisa Vanlerberghe was 16 when she decided she wanted to be an engineer. Her chemistry teacher encouraged her because of her academic excellence in both math and science. Vanlerberghe chose MSOE, not only because of the great programs, but that it also offered her an opportunity to pursue her other passion: sports.
Vanlerberghe graduated from MSOE in 2002 with a degree in industrial engineering and a minor in business management. All four years, she played basketball and for one year, volleyball. In addition, she holds an MBA with an emphasis in organizational development from Upper Iowa University.
Vanlerberghe is the senior manager of strategic supply planning for MillerCoors. She has over 17 years of experience in the beer industry in engineering and operations and is certified in APICS Supply Chain Management. Currently, she is responsible for the U.S. supply chain: network optimization/modeling and creation of the monthly supply plan for sales and operations planning. Vanlerberghe started working for MillerCoors just before her senior year at MSOE.
In addition to work, Vanlerberghe is also passionate about supporting the community. She currently serves on the board of directors for the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin and is an active supporter of both the National Alliance on Mental Illness – Greater Milwaukee, and United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County.
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her spouse, Patrice, their two English Cream Golden Retrievers, two cats and one red-eared slider turtle. You can also find Vanlerberghe supporting the Green Bay Packers or traveling with her lifelong friends from MSOE.
