I'm Lisa, Your Personal
Biographer & Life Story Writer.

I love conversing with people, listening to their personal and professional journeys, capturing their experiences and philosophies in writing, and becoming an integral part of highlighting their legacy.

 

I’m here to show you your life was not a series of haphazard decisions or random starts and stops along the way. I’ll connect the dots to show you the cohesion of your life and the overarching themes that may not be readily apparent to you. Just as people have influenced you, your life has influenced others, and a biography is the opportunity to influence the generations to come.

Because Your
Story Matters!

Sitting down and telling your story is a powerful form of self-care and healing like no other. The journey of telling it matters.

 

Each and every person’s life is significant, complete with joys, heartbreaks, failures, successes, challenges, and triumphs. To share your life with others is an act of self-empowerment and generosity. Your story might be the seed for someone else’s growth.

 

Everyone has an incredible story to tell. Let me help you tell yours. Let’s get started!

What Others Have
Written About Me

"Everyone knows the power of story.  Lisa knows that everybody has within them a very good, real-life one to tell.  Her special gift is that she goes beyond, by not only turning those memories, facts, and circumstances into a more ordered, professional recounting, but she adds a touch that ignites them into a bright, attractive story.  My experience is that the result is marvelous, bordering on overwhelming."
