Lisa is originally from San Diego but has lived in Las Vegas most of her life. This has given her what she describes as “a genuine love for the beauty of the desert, and a heartfelt concern for its dilemmas.” She holds a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies from University of Nevada Las Vegas, where she focused on sustainability issues involving our precious resources, as well as the societal and economic problems resulting from the various environmental dilemmas that we face today.
Lisa has always harbored an advocate’s spirit. Beginning at age 12 she began advocating for animal rights, attending anti-nuke rallies opposing the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository, and actively supporting many women’s rights organizations and causes.
Her 20+ years in the salon and beauty industry have allowed her to make valuable friendships in all walks of life- friendships that open doors and create an awareness to the many problems facing our city and our society. Her involvement with B.E. A S.H.E.R.O. is a product of one of those friendships, and it is how she came to be the Founding Inaugural Chairperson of the Technology Committee. After two years as Tech Chair, Lisa accepted a position on the SHERO Executive Board, where she serves as the Communications Lead.
When she is not at the Salon, Lisa really enjoys cooking and hanging out with her husband and her dogs. She loves her Peloton workouts and reading books on forensic science, history, environmental issues and world development.
Superheroine Vixen is the character that Lisa most associates herself with. Vixen holds the power of the entire animal kingdom and is a fierce protector of the innocent and the earth. She is an animal rights activist who can harness the abilities of any creature to battle those that dare bring harm to Mother Nature.
