    We have some traditions here at the Budget Blinds of Harrisburg, Hershey & Carlisle, and one of those traditions is recognizing our awesome team members! So, who is in the spotlight this week? That would be Emma Bahm. She’s a Sales Consultant Trainee with us—which means that someday soon, you could work with her on your own window treatment needs.

    Emma started with us in November 2021. She brings a lot to the table in her role.

    Today, we're thrilled to introduce you to a wonderful member of our Budget Blinds family - Lisa Walsh! Lisa joined our team on February 2nd, 2023, as our dedicated Office Manager, bringing with her a wealth of expertise and a heartwarming passion for customer service.

    While Lisa didn't grow up in our service area, she's been a Central, PA, resident since 1980. When she's not at the office, you can find her tending to her bountiful garden, where veggies and flowers flourish, or satisfying her wanderlust with exciting travels.

    Lisa's personal life is just as rich as her professional one. She's been married to Mark since 1989 and has two amazing adult children. Their four beloved pets, Zelena and Liath (the welcoming committee at our showroom), along with two wise 13-year-old cats, complete their lively household.

    In 2019, Lisa achieved a significant milestone by graduating from SNHU with a degree in Accounting, a testament to her lifelong commitment to learning.
