In Jacksonville, Lisa and her husband of 39 years restored their 1909 home in the Springfield historic district. During this time, Lisa served on many boards, including the Jacksonville Historic Commission, so it wasn't surprising she got involved in Dade City as soon as she made this charming town her home. Lisa began as a member of the Historic Board in Dade City before being appointed to her current position as Commissioner. Being the owner of a home built by a local citrus grower, Lisa has become captivated by the rich history and lore of Dade City. Lisa worked in education and real estate for many years before retiring from both fields. She is a mother to five children, and grandmother, lovingly known as "Weezie," to five grandchildren who love to explore the shops downtown and attend the local festivals when they come to visit.
