About Lisa

I have been primarily a stay-at-home mom to our 4 children for the past 28 years. I earned an MFA from UCLA's School of Theater, Film and Television in 1990 and have worked periodically in motion picture advertisement. I have been the mother of at least one teenager for almost 22 consecutive years and now that I'm on my last year of this, I'm ready to start focusing more energy on my personal interests: photography, writing, cooking and travel.


When difficult change is needed, focus on baby steps.

What do you wish you had more of in your life?

I wish that I had more creative output.

Where do you hope to see women in 50 years?

I would like to see a shift in power so that women take on a majority of leadership roles.
