Although born and raised in Baltimore, MD, Lisa currently resides in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
After homeschooling her children she realized it is easier to teach people she doesn't know, so she turned her children over to a private school and began her teaching career as a secondary English teacher.
Lisa has been in the field of education for over 15 years. She has taught Kindergarten, middle and high school English, Social Studies, ESL and courses in African history.
Lisa has a B.A. in English with a minor in African and African American Studies from Coppin State University. She holds a M.A. in African and African American Studies from The Ohio State University and is currently working towards a P.h.D in English Creative Nonfiction at Oklahoma State University.
She currently juggles being a wife to her soul mate and a mommy to their three intelligent and beautiful girls and wise handsome son.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family, bike riding, quiet walks in nature, a good cup of coffee, escaping in a good book or writing about her life.
