Lisa is a wife and mother of two who is committed to bringing families closer together through handcrafts. She believes the power of connection starts at home and expands through every aspect of our lives. As she teaches in her classes, the simple act of knitting or crocheting a fabric together strengthens the bond between generations, opens a space for sharing common interests, and enables us to make connections with others that are powerful and meaningful. Lisa has expanded this philosophy into her business relationships and uses the power of connection in linking people together to create vibrant synergies. As a businesswoman, she is committed to helping others succeed by enabling them to find the resources they need to achieve their goals.
