Lisa Baker

Business Development Consultant
Michigan, Traverse City | Full-Service HR

I am a Business Consultant in the Traverse City office. I am responsible for obtaining and retaining business in the Northern Michigan region. I have worked for AccessPoint since 2013.

Prior to my work with AccessPoint, I excelled as Director of New Business Development for a technology company, was Manager for a consumer-facing medium-sized organization and a Wellness Consultant at my local gym. My diverse work history allows me the real-world experience to relate to my customer base and outline AccessPoint solutions to meet their needs quickly and efficiently. I am always proficient and professional in my delivery. My greatest source of new business is by referral. In addition to my role building relationships with Business Owners, I am also accountable to my AccessPoint team. I rely on their expertise to implement the agreed-upon services. I communicate directly with the assigned service providers (ie. Human Resource Professionals, Payroll Specialists, Benefits Administrators, and Safety Managers) before, during and after the acquisition of new business. I value communication and AccessPoint’s creed to make your business better!

I have an outgoing personality and that serves me well as I enjoy participating in my community as a member of the Traverse City Economic Club, Board Directors for TCNewTech, Board Director for Single MOMM, Advisory Board member for the Leadership Lunch Club in Traverse City, Steering Committee Member for the Autism Advantage and Past Co-Chair for the Board of Directors for the American Red Cross of Northern Michigan. I am an avid volunteer living and working in my hometown of Traverse City.

In my free time, I enjoy my church community, spending time with my family of five, watching my boys play sports, working out, eating good food, hiking and walking my dogs!
