When asked how she ended up at St. Kate’s, Lisa replied, “I reached out to Michelle Weiser regarding mentoring. One conversation led to the next and I was asked if I would be interested in teaching.” For Lisa, the answer was simple. She had always had the dream of teaching at the collegiate level, stating, “It is a way to give back to students by sharing experiences and knowledge from my career.”
