Lisa has been creative all her life. Growing up, she was the weird kid making up songs on her ways to school, dressing
up her dog in handmade finery, and lapsing into strange accents in the middle of conversations. She was the one you could
always turn to for advice when you needed a clever approach to a school project. And when your life was too much to handle,

find their creative way. She has a diverse background in environmental planning, environmental education, gemology,
performance, motivation, and jewelry design. She has taught outdoor education, jewelry history, jewelry making, children's
programs, and vocal training. Whatever she is doing, her goals are always the same: make a difference, create meaningful
connections, and help others to see
