Lisa grew up in Delaware with her parents and older sister. Her weekends were filled with trips up and down the east coast for soccer tournaments. This, she claims, gave her the “itch” to travel. She eventually ended up going to college in North Carolina at UNC Wilmington. She later worked as an Assistant Park Ranger for the state of North Carolina. Since graduating college, Lisa surfed in Costa Rica, backpacked through Europe, and had several cross country adventures in the states. She has been escaping into the wilderness ever since. She spent three winters working at Copper Mountain Ski Resort in the high country of Colorado. She also worked as a Trail Crew Leader in Oregon for Northwest Youth Corps during a recent summer.
Lisa believes that a person should truly love what they do for a living and feels that she has been fortunate to work in some of the country’s most beautiful outdoor “offices”. She feels that living in the outdoors helps you to slow down and appreciate all of natures beauty. Lisa believes that the wilderness is the perfect place for one to grow and learn about who they really are. Her life experiences have given her a strong desire to pass on her knowledge and way of living to those who want to learn. When Lisa is not at work, she is usually traveling, hiking, camping, snowboarding, refereeing a soccer match, or spending time with friends and family.
