Lisa CockrellSr. Payroll Lead & Diversity, Inclusion, & Belonging Leader
Lisa came to Radio Flyer in 2010 as the Payroll Lead. Since that time Lisa has consistently added to the Radio Flyer culture by serving on various committees like the Wellness committee, Wagon U, and most recently leading the Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging Committee. Lisa loves talking and learning about different people - where they come from, their life experiences, and interest.
In her free time Lisa and her husband love cheering on the University of Michigan, Wolverines, spending time with family, and watching movies. Lisa can quote all the lines from Coming to America and The Five Heartbeats.
Favorite Family Activity:
Christmas Shopping with my Mom and two sisters. This is an annual event held on the first Friday in December. We start early in the morning and finish late that evening. We spend the day laughing, eating, and shopping! It’s a day I look forward every year.
Favorite Outdoor Game as a Kid:
Hopscotch - I loved drawing out the hopscotch board with chalk on the sidewalk and jumping with my sisters and friends. Last summer, while walking through my neighborhood I came across a hopscotch board on the sidewalk and I couldn’t resist jumping on one foot through the board. My balance isn’t as good as it used to be, but I made it to the end without stepping on the line!
What Makes You Smile?
I smile all the time, so it doesn’t take much, but my nieces and nephew seem to ALWAYS put a smile on my face. Whether they are telling a silly joke, singing a song to the top of their lungs, or experiencing something for the first time, I love watching them grow and discover all the wonders of life.
Favorite Way to Play:
I am very competitive. I don’t always show it but just know in my head I’m playing to win! If I’m playing a game and me or my team don’t win, I immediately begin to dissect what went wrong and how we can fix it for the next game.
Favorite Radio Flyer Product and Why:
I love the Radio Flyer Classic Red Tricycle. It’s so nostalgic, and it immediately takes you back to the simplicity of childhood.
