Originally from the Ohio Valley, Lisa started her college years as a bassoon performance major, but life’s unpredictable path led her to accounting. She has worked in Arizona public school finance since 1999, and has also worked seasonally as a tax professional. She has a lifelong love and concern for animals. She dotes upon her rescue kitty, Butterscotch. When Butterscotch deems it acceptable, Lisa also enjoys movies, concerts, reading (mostly non-fiction), carving pumpkins, and learning about alpacas.
