Meet Arizona Latinos for Marriage: Lisa Urias

LisaUriasLisa Urias is a proud Arizona Latina. She is a well-known businessperson who was born and raised in Phoenix.

Lisa spent more than 15 years in international marketing for Alesco Consultores in Mexico and the Salt River Project in Phoenix. In 2003, she founded Urias Communications, a public relations and advertising firm with a multicultural focus. The firm has an emphasis on the growing Hispanic market. Lisa was named one of Phoenix Business Journal’s 25 Most Admired CEOs in 2012. She graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor’s degree in English.

“As a business owner, I know that the freedom to marry will improve Arizona’s economy,” Lisa said. “It will boost tax revenues and alleviate payroll headaches.”

“For me, the most important thing is to have a positive impact on the community,” Lisa said. “That is why I support the freedom to marry in Arizona—no Arizonan should have to tolerate discrimination by their government.”
