    Lisa Sweeney

    Lisa Sweeney is the Executive Director of the SKYGEN International Foundation, which is focused on finding cost effective ways to improve healthcare in underserved parts of the world by using emerging technology. In this role, she is charged with developing all operations from the ground-up. The Foundation’s current initiative is generating funding to train local care teams to use the latest mobile diagnostic equipment for vision testing in Tanzania, and in the future, other developing nations. Children and adults in these communities will receive glasses custom-made to their specific prescription.

    Ms. Sweeney moved into the charitable practice of SKYGEN after contributing to the success of the corporate side for more than 16 years as the Chief Financial Officer. During that time, she also led SKYGEN’s vision benefits management organization, as well as making contributions in a variety of functional areas including operations, quality, cost containment, compliance, facilities, and human resources.
