The Story of Lisa Rose

Lisa Rose began her career in snow and ice management at a local snow removal company in Erie, Pennsylvania.  As a part-time dispatcher, she managed plow, salt trucks, and sidewalk crews in the field as well as visited and inspected customer locations.  Being from Erie, PA, Lisa understands snow as a way of life.  

For a period of time, Ms. Rose entered the legal field.  She worked as a court stenographer, administrative assistant to a federal judge, and oversaw the paralegal department of a large law firm in Pittsburgh, PA. 

 

She returned to the snow management business in 1999 and worked her way to Senior Vice President of Operations for Snow Management Group (SMG), the largest snow management company in North America.  Lisa oversaw field operations on 5,000 sites maintained by 4,000+ employees and service providers nationwide in 40 states for customers such as First Union, Wachovia Bank, CVS, Toys R Us, Home Depot and more.  Lisa maintained operations in Erie while also assisting in establishing the snow response plan for the Winter Olympics of 2002.  

 

After a period of self-employment as a snow industry consultant as well as a scopist and proofreader for court stenographers, Lisa joined John Allin Consulting, Inc., in 2009, in a behind-the-scenes administrative role which progressed to an associate position.  Lisa took on the role of interacting with attorneys across the United States, reviewing and analyzing reports of other experts, and co-authoring comprehensive expert reports.    

 

John Allin states, “Lisa has an excellent background of snow and ice management experience.  When combined with her legal training and experience, she has the ability to review and assess legal cases from both the plaintiff and defense side.”  

 

With the creation of Allin / Rose Consulting, Inc., Lisa is using her career accomplishments within the legal field and the snow and ice management industry to consult snow contractors as well as providing opinions and conclusions, author reports in slip-and-fall cases, and providing testimony.  

 

When Lisa is away from the computer, she enjoys living a healthy lifestyle of running, hiking, and camping with her dog, Skye.
