Lisa is a native of Boston, Massachusetts and currently resides in Columbia, Maryland. She has more than 20 years of experience managing high-profile logistics contracts for a wide number of federal agencies. She is a Project Director, Plus Model, Media Correspondent, Online Radio Personality; Brand Ambassador; Smooches Woman; Amateur Photographer and most importantly Mother and Grandmother. Though she did some modeling in high school her journey into the world of modeling did not begin again until 2016 when she began modeling for a local boutique, auditioned for a local fashion show, and submitted an entry for inclusion in a photo project for women who were over 40 and what made them fabulous. Those events were a catalyst creating a desire to learn more about the world of plus size modeling and thus a new phase of her journey began. Having always had somewhat eclectic taste in fashion and style she loves having the ability to rip the runway and showcase the artistic creativity of promoters, designers, boutiques, and the like. She is reinventing herself daily and avidly believes that it never too late to begin again. Her participation in the Ms. Full-Figured D.M.V. Pageant is proof of that. Her heart’s desire is to encourage, uplift, and empower all people to “Live Life Now”, and impress upon them the importance of self-care and positivity and how that has a direct impact on the well-being of their physical, spiritual, emotional, financial and relational life areas, so that they do not merely exist, but live the abundant life that God has ordained for everyone. She is a living example of one who dares to dream and act on it despite the challenges faced that are made to tear one down. The words of her favorite poet Dr. Maya Angelou “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty” are a witness to the inner and outer beauty that comes in life despite the obstacles one must overcome if you not only believe in yourself and your dreams, but also act upon them.
