"I'm honored to be part of an organization that makes investor protection a number one priority."

She quickly learned that NFA's management has an open-door policy, which provided her with the opportunity to collaborate with other employees, further develop her interpersonal skills, and improve her technical skills. Additionally, Lisa appreciates NFA's excellent work/life balance, which has allowed her the flexibility to work remotely on her projects.
