A native of Miami, R. Lisa Smoak spent much of her childhood overseas, thanks to her father’s career in the United States Air Force. She credits her military upbringing with instilling self-discipline and personal responsibility, qualities that served her well in overcoming adversity in her childhood and adolescence. After living in Satellite Beach, where her father was stationed in 1979, and relocating to California, Lisa returned to Miami, where she graduated from Miami Springs High School.
Following graduation, she returned to Satellite Beach. After two years spent working at the Communications Center of the Rockledge Police Department, she began her career in law enforcement as a reserve officer in June of 1999. Six months later, she was offered a full-time position and served her community in uniform until her retirement in January, 2014.
Utilizing real-world experience and knowledge gleaned from a Bachelor of Science with a minor in Information Technology and a Master of Arts Administration from Barry University, along with HIPAA Training for Business Associates from the University of Central Florida, Lisa launched Surveillance Biometric Tracking Device (SBTD), Inc. in 2013.
An exciting startup company in the newly emerging field of Tracking Devices, SBTD’s mission is to become the leading manufacturer of Family Locator Devices and Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) products. Although a recent undertaking, SBTD’s origins date back to an unsettling incident in Lisa’s childhood, when her two-year-old brother Ali was kidnapped. She explains, “For many hours I thought my brother was dead and I still remember the anxiety and fear I felt inside.”
Although Ali was recovered alive and unharmed, the ordeal became a defining moment in Lisa’s life, inspiring her career in law enforcement and her decision to create SBTD. With its sophisticated devices, databases, and software, STDB assists in the recovery and apprehension of lost or missing persons. Lisa’s insight has guided her in her efforts to conceive and design products and solutions that meet the needs of an increasing population.
Thanks to a combination of continuous evolving miniaturized technologies, SBTD provides affordable, easy-to-use solutions. The core engineering is based on patented software that enables tracking, monitoring, and locating. The next evolution of SBTD technology will embrace a visual scheme to further enhance situational awareness, particularly useful for healthcare providers and caretakers of the elderly and disabled.
“I’m excited to serve the public once again in a different role,” Lisa explains.
