Lisa is a sixth generation Texan, born on the Army base at Ft. Hood in 1960. Her family lived in the United States and around the world with her father, a now retired U.S. Army Colonel. Her ancestors first came to Texas from Tennessee in a covered wagon in 1851, when they established the town of Bagdad, which is near modern-day Leander. She’s never forgotten her family’s home in Williamson County, where they have owned their farm for over 150 years. Many of her family members still live in Williamson County.
After graduation from Georgetown High School in 1978, Lisa attended Texas A&M University, where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in 1982. Next, she taught public school for over 13 years in mainly Round Rock and Austin ISD. Her teaching tenure included 9 years in Austin teaching pre-kindergarten in the state and federally funded program for underprivileged and/or non-English speaking four year olds.
