Lisa Tierney


Lisa Tierney is a certified life strategies coach who specializes in working with professional service providers.


She began her career over twenty years ago as a Marketing Director at a regional – then national CPA firm - excelling at her ability to create an impetus for change around marketing and business development efforts. Over time, Lisa learned how to craft effective programs and successful initiatives that transformed the way the firm’s professionals perceived themselves and their approach to serving clients. As part of that process, Lisa began to understand the obstacles that stood in the way of their success and resolved to share her winning formula with the accounting profession.


She launched TIERNEY Coaching & Consulting, Inc. in 2009 and has enjoyed much success by providing high-level individual coaching to shareholders and up-and-coming leaders at CPA firms across the county. Lisa says, “Coaching is THE most effective change agent for firms who want to define and control the way they will grow and thrive in today’s ever-changing environment.”


The benefits of working with TIERNEY Coaching & Consulting are far reaching and include increased confidence and communication skills; enhanced leadership and managerial skills, better morale and productivity; reduced conflict and dysfunction and an overall heightened sense of awareness around what is wanted and how it will be best achieved.


Lisa’s commitment to professional service providers is demonstrated by the organizations she supports such as the CPA Leadership Institute, AGN International, IAPA, and the Association for Accounting Marketing. She is a sought-after speaker and workshop facilitator and has presented at dozens of national and international conferences proving effective and interactive workshops.  Lisa is an author and has been featured in numerous publications such as Accounting Today, Inside Public Accounting, The Philadelphia Business Journal, and the JD Supra Business Advisor.  She published a book for professional women, titled Women Empowerment at Work: Create Your Own Success in 2016. She served as Chairperson of BKR International’s Marketing Committee, a network of over 135 member CPA firms with more than 300 offices in over 70 countries around the world. Lisa is a graduate of New York University, where she received a scholarship toward her Bachelor’s degree.
