Lisa Walsh


Lisa Walsh is a partner in Bridgespan's San Francisco office. Lisa has over 25 years of for-profit and nonprofit consulting experience in strategy, operations, and organization.

Prior to joining Bridgespan, Lisa was a partner and senior director with Bain & Company, where she led Bain’s West Coast Healthcare practice. She has broad and deep healthcare experience working with payers, providers (physicians and hospitals, pediatric, and adult), and healthcare technology and services companies. While with Bain many of her healthcare clients were nonprofit, and her pro bono and board experience includes work with the Gladstone Institute (medical research) and the Beacon Initiative after-school youth program.
