Lisa likes to write. A lot. And she's been doing it for a really, reeeeally long time.

She's the author of How to Raise Perfectly Imperfect Kids And Be Ok With It: Real Tips & Strategies for Parents of Today’s Gen Z Kids, Untying Parent Anxiety: 18 Myths that Have You in Knots—And How to Get Free, and LIFE: It Is What It Is.

She's also the author of the nationally syndicated opinion column It Is What It Is, featured in over 500 GateHouse Media, Inc. newspapers and lifestyle websites around the country.

A long-time columnist and humorist for GateHouse, as well as a regular contributor at GrownAndFlown.com, LittleThings.com, MommingHubb, This Mama Wines, HotMomsClub, and Care.com, the mother of two and wife understands that life's not perfect and it's not supposed to be.

She reminds us that it's only when we realize that life isn't a straight line that we can finally find happiness. "Life is messy and unpredictable. And the bottom line," she says, "is that we're supposed to screw up, make bad decisions, and lose our way. Because the reality is, life is messy, chaotic, and sometimes downright cruel. But it's also joyous, fulfilling, and endlessly surprising. We just have to remember that it's a work in progress. And so are we."

Lisa has made frequent radio appearances from coast to coast. Some of her radio appearances include: LittleThingLIVE, GrownAndFlownLIVE, Thank God for Mondays, The Broads Way, The Warren Lawrence Show, Talk of the Town, The Brynn Project, The Experience Pros, Morning Magazine, KPQ News Reports, and Midday Cafe with Jack Baldwin.

Her opinion columns and books remind us that with the right attitude, and some dope slaps from her, anyone can be happy and fulfilled most of the time.
