Lissette holds a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from the Ringling College of Art + Design. Over the years, she as gravitated to the business and marketing side of the architecture and design industry. Lissette ran her own Interiors business for 7 years and has brought that experience to Sweet Sparkman Architects. She now serves as the Marketing Manager for the Firm as well as the interior division, Dwell Interiors.
Originally from Puerto Rico, Lissette grew up in Pennsylvania and moved to Sarasota in 2007 to pursue her education at Ringling College. She quickly fell in love with the rich arts culture and architectural history of Sarasota. With the perfect weather and pristine beaches Sarasota offered, she decided to make the move permanent.
Besides Architecture and Design, her interests are socializing, cooking, boating, traveling, and cars. Above all she loves spending time with her husband, Oscar, and her two long-haired dachshunds, Marco and Polo. She believes in the power of a delicious meal and a good bottle of wine to bring people together.
