Cathy Collet

Cathy administers industry benchmarking studies with a focus on breaking down information silos and transforming data into meaningful information. With particular expertise in the utility industry, Cathy has worked with the American Gas Association and Edison Electric Institute since 1996 to make the DataSource benchmarking tool a must-have member benefit for utilities. Prior to co-founding Collet and Schafer, Incorporated, she developed a variety of business and systems experience at Eli Lilly and Company.

After earning her B.S. degree magna cum laude from Saint Mary's College, Cathy received her M.S. degree in mathematics from the University of Notre Dame. Cathy is an experienced and enthusiastic teacher both in university classrooms and in business settings.

As her clients know from all those e-clippings, Cathy is a voracious reader. She is a relentless volunteer in the battle against ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) as seen here completing the #ALSIceBucketChallenge. Cathy enjoys travelling to distant lands to learn about people and places, but is more frequently found in the Indianapolis office accompanied by her rescued basset hound, Zoe.

Lisa has conducted performance improvement projects, delivered training solutions, developed systems, and administered industry benchmarking surveys for Fortune 100 clients. Clients in the pharmaceutical, insurance, healthcare, and consumer products industries return to Lisa year after year for administration of their annual HR benchmarking and compensation studies. Her business experience, combined with her experience in data analysis and presentation, human capital, and the appropriate use of technology, are a valuable resource for clients.

Lisa graduated with Highest Distinction from Purdue University with a bachelor's degree in Management and earned a master's degree in Educational Technology from San Diego State University. She has presented at ISPI, ASTD, and e-Learning Guild events and is the co-author of the book, Job Aids & Performance Support: Moving from Knowledge in the Classroom to Knowledge Everywhere.

Lisa has way too much fun with data analysis, is obsessed about data quality, takes pride in engaging presentations, and appreciates working in a small office where she can personally pick up the telephone after the first ring. She enjoys living in sunny San Diego where she spends time hiking, spoiling her golden retriever, and trying to get text and telephone replies from her young adult children.
