President & Founder
Lisa Stehno-Bittel serves as president and founder of Likarda, LLC. Lisa began her career in health care as a physical therapist helping her patients rehabilitate from injuries or illness, but she was frustrated in the lack of progress for some of her patients. She needed new tools to help them overcome life-changing diseases. She went back to school to obtain a PhD from the University of Missouri in physiology and completed a pharmacology post-doctoral fellowship at the Mayo School of Medicine. With more than 25 years of research experience in the fields of cell biology and diabetes, she has over 70 publications in scientific journals. Lisa has received numerous awards, including Ingram Magazine’s “50 Kansans You Should Know” and the 2018 Kansas Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
Lisa enjoys water and snow skiing and traveling with her husband and kids. One of her favorite annual trips is heading to Sturgis each year on her motorcycle.
