I’ve been described as having a “unique brand of professional-yet-street” approach to my work, which is highly accurate given my roots and branches. I’m equally comfortable in highly educated arenas as I am in the projects. My daughter says I’m “sweet, caring and love my children”, which is THE best endorsement I could ask for.

Prolific speaker and writer, published author, poet and artist, I’ve presented all across the nation. My first book, Shattered: How everything came together when it all fell apart, was published in August 2017 and is based on my dissertation research.

Recently, Lisa founded the Professionals of Color Network, the premiere business and networking organization in the Denver Metro Area.
