I’ve always enjoyed telling stories. In elementary school, my nickname was Loudmouth Lisa.
With age, I’ve gotten more productive with my words. My energy is now directed toward helping others rather than just entertaining them. I’ve spent two decades following the career path of my dreams–and failed at finding true love for fifteen years–and those experiences shape my best public speaking events. From motivating others to never settle in life and take risks to accepting dating mistakes and learning how to love yourself first to sharing insights about video storytelling, content marketing development, hospitality design and social media, my chats are always honest, frank and served with a slice of humble pie (and a glass of Champagne).
Sadly, the rebuild process from the 2017 Tubbs Fire side-lined my public speaking for five years. I hope to jump back in in 2023.
