Hi. I’m Lisa–the small-town girl who was supposed to grow up and acquire a taste for Coors Light and guys named Bubba.

Twenty years and fifty boyfriends later, I’m living my dreams in Sonoma wine country. I spend my days running the marketing and communications department for Jordan Vineyard & Winery–and my nights and weekends drinking up life with my soulmate. If you want to see me talk about myself in third person (ugh!), check out my biography.

My journey wasn’t without heartaches and headaches, searching for true love and my calling in life during my twenties. But, it made for some juicy material for my memoir, The Exes in My Glass.

Lately, I spend most of my free time trying to recover from the wildfires that raged through wine country in October 2017. Our dream house was badly damaged, our garage destroyed and my fabulous yard incinerated–including my badass sunken hottub. I’m still pissed about that. Fortunately, I have the means to repair and rebuild, even where insurance fell short, but so many others are not as lucky. Proceeds from 2018 book sales will be donated to Sonoma Family Meal, created to help families in need of nourishment after the devastating wildfires. When you purchase a $9.99 ebook, I get $7 to give to wildfire victims. So, you get to have a few laughs, and your money will be put to good use.
