Lisa Sadler

Director, Fulbright Awards Programme

Lisa joined the Fulbright Commission in March 2022 and was initially the US Programme Manager. After providing maternity cover for the Director role and stepping into the newly created Head of Special Projects for four months, Lisa returned to the Director role from January 2024. This includes managing the Awards team and the relationships with UK award sponsors and partners.

Before joining the Commission, Lisa spent five years teaching English at university level and lived in Mexico for three years. She also has over 20 years experience working in international recruitment for UK Universities.  

In her spare time, Lisa enjoys spending time walking her dogs and continuing to improve her very poor Spanish!
