OUR STAFF

The BRP team brings unique individual experience and a collective desire to be the best partner for each and every client. Sally included.

LISA STOKES

President

Central Pennsylvania native, Lisa is the owner and president of BRP Entertainment. She began her career at Penn National Race Course, located in Grantville, PA, where her position went from Group Sales Assistant to Director of Marketing for the publicly traded company during her 18 year tenure. During that time Lisa completed her Bachelor’s degree in Special Education at Millersville University, but after a promotion to Marketing Director at Penn National, she pursued a marketing career.

Her career took a turn in April 1999, when she partnered in the purchase of then Bruce Rohrbach Productions. Changing the name to BRP Entertainment, the company is celebrating over 60 years as a successful business in Central PA. 

Lisa has a strong commitment to the community in which she lives and works. She served as the International President of Executive Women International and a Director for the Harrisburg Regional Chamber. Currently she serves on the YWCA Association Board, The Salvation Army Board, and is the Chair of The Visit Hershey-Harrisburg Board, as well as a member of Penbrook UCC.

Lisa’s family is her greatest joy. She and her husband Dick have resided in the Hummelstown area for 60 years and raised two children, Ben and Casey, and are blessed to live close to their two granddaughters, Raya and Joey.

SARAH MARENCIC

She worked as a secondary math teacher in Lancaster for 4 years and spent one year teaching English abroad in Sano, Japan.

JORDAN SALLADE

Office Manager

Jordan attended Penn State University in pursuit of an Elementary Education degree after graduating from high school here in Central PA. After getting married and starting a family of her own, she decided to explore other career paths and joined the BRP team in 2017. What, at the time, seemed to be a happenstance career change, has sparked a passion for entertainment, music and meaningful events that Jordan has had throughout her life.

Jordan’s most meaningful aspiration, however, is that of being a Godly mother, wife, sister, daughter, and friend. In her spare time, she enjoys participating in the music ministry at her church alongside her husband, Nick. Together her and her family also enjoy antiquing, traveling, gardening, and cooking. Her truest joy is that of being a proud mom of her two children, Ginny and Matthew.

Previously an intern with BRP in 2019, Becky returned to our office in 2021 to join our staff. She is a graduate of York College of Pennsylvania, where she earned a degree in Music Industry and Recording Technology with a minor in Musical Theater. 

Voice is her primary instrument of study. Becky strives to incorporate her strong passion for the arts into much of her life. This includes not only working at BRP, but also performing in music and theatre productions, songwriting, acting, making character appearances in the community and teaching/guiding others with similar passions. She enjoys finding additional opportunities to work alongside children in developing their creativity, confidence, and love for the arts.
