Lisa’s interest in genealogy struck when she was contacted by Laura about an adopted client who was related to her family. Having gone to school to become a paralegal, along with her love of research, she became extremely interested in finding out who this young man belonged to. While trying to learn everything she could to solve this mystery, she bought AncestryDNA kits for her entire family. Along the journey, Lisa followed DNAngels and absorbed everything she could. She now volunteers as an Intake Specialist, and enjoys learning more about how to solve cases.
As a Paralegal, Lisa got bored with the day to day duties and needed a challenge, so she transitioned to the technology side. She now holds 30+ years of technology experience, where she trains and supports legal applications for her current firm.
While stuck at home during the Covid-19 crisis, she put her spare time to good use and took several coding and web design classes to fill her nights when not screening clients for DNAngels. Along with her decades of experience in technology, she is an invaluable asset to DNAngels as our Director of IT.
Lisa is a widow with two grown kids and five grandkids, three girls and two boys. She loves to read, plan parties, and took up cake decorating over 10 years ago just so she could bake and decorate birthday cakes for her grandkids!
