She is also ‘Mission Be’ certified as a Mindful Educator and introduces mindfulness in client’s lives, as well as in the classroom. Lisa followed this path after seeing what a healthy lifestyle did for herself and her family.

She makes it her focus to understand her client’s unique desires, motivators and challenges to most efficiently help set appropriate, achievable goals. Her approach is a nonjudgmental one whereby she holds her clients accountable to wellness intensions. She helps to recognize when her clients are not following a planned path, and be there to point out accomplishments that may have been overlooked. Lisa works with her clients to make wellness dreams a reality.
