Internationally, Lisa was a consultant for a television station in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, helping train reporters how to cover politics during a national election. She also covered the election there for CNN. She has worked for local television stations in Philadelphia, New York, Orlando, Phoenix, Austin, and Monterey, CA. She is a journalism graduate of the University of Texas at Austin.
Lisa is a globe-trekker, having traveled to 50+ countries. Always one to leap at adventure, Lisa has bungeed off a bridge in Zimbabwe, hiked through a leech-infested rain forest outside Kathmandu, crawled military-style through a cave in the Amazon in Ecuador, climbed Mt. Sinai in Egypt, and climbed an active ice volcano in Chile wearing crampons.
Along the way, she met her husband, a fellow adventurer. Together they live in Austin and have four children, who have considerably slowed their overseas escapades. They are also licensed foster parents.
