Ask your friends and family to show their support for Lisa
Candidate Name: Lisa Patel
Lisa Patel is our current Ms. International World United States. She is a young outgoing professional woman that comes from the mountains of North Carolina where she started her career in modeling and completed her studies in marketing. While doing a photoshoot in Tampa, Lisa fell in love with the beautiful scenery, proximity to our beaches, and business potential. Shortly after, Lisa decided to make Tampa her home. Now residing in Tampa, she is an investor in a local tech start up (for which she now serves on the board), and she is the Founder of the marketing firm, The Buki Agency. Lisa’s days keep her busy promoting her work in modeling as well as in developing her business ventures. Lisa also represents Titan Medical Center as one of the Titanette's. She was chosen over hundreds of applicants and she is thrilled to be apart of such an incredible team as they dominate the US market!
Having spent seven years in marketing, events and promotions, she has gained much knowledge in the industry, and her business savvy has allowed her to build a network of diversified talent nationwide. Through her creative marketing firm the Buki Agency, she uses these strengths to help businesses create a branding strategy to maximize their efforts and reach their desired goal. Every brand flourishes with personality and an image!
Lisa does not limit her talent to her own business goals; having grown up to Indian parents and learning of their struggles in the village where they once lived, Lisa has also developed a passion for helping families in need. As a candidate for the Tampa Bay’s Woman of the Year, she finds it very rewarding to be able to give back to the Westchase Charitable Foundation.
Lisa strives to elevate herself and her business, while maintaining community presence as she has taken part in the Great American Teach In and developing a program called Kingz and Queenz where Lisa reaches the teenage base and encourages them to never be afraid to take the steps to deter away from bullying and to cohesively always keep moving forward in their day to day lives.
It is a privilege to be selected as a nominee for Tampa Bay’s woman of the year and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve such a worthy cause.
