Lisa Farris began her career at Ledwell in May of 1991. She started as a receptionist and in Accounts Receivable, but transferred to Accounts Payable within her first year. Lisa continued in AP for 19 years before returning to Accounts Receivable. In 2013, Lisa became Ledwell’s Human Resources Director.
Lisa is in charge of processing payroll, 401K and insurance. Her favorite part of Human Resources is getting to know the 400 plus employees on a deeper level. “Being the one they come to with questions or when they need something done, I know when they are getting married or divorced, expecting or delivering, sick or recovering and in general just want to talk.”
Her most memorable project while working at Ledwell was helping build a log house for Watersprings Ranch. Lisa recalls, “Being one of the ‘girls’, we didn’t get to do any construction, but Mr. Ledwell would let us clean up around the work area. It was still fun knowing we were a part of helping someone else in need.”
Lisa takes care of everyone at Ledwell going beyond her job duties. She is known as “Mama Ledwell” at a local clinic because she is constantly calling for employees to make sure they stay in good health. She has seen many changes at Ledwell and has enjoyed watching the company grow from 150 employees to about 450 and hopes to be here for many more changes and employees.
While not at work, Lisa enjoys fishing and traveling with her husband of 27 years, Jay, and daughter Burgandy, 23. She also loves to go to Northwestern State University football and basketball games.
