With a background in public relations and more than 14 years experience reporting and writing in the news industry, I am excited to be doing what I love as a freelancer.

Passion topics include family, health, arts and entertainment, culture and trends, faith, food, outdoors and travel.

When I'm not writing I am running to keep up with my three kids, enjoying the sunshine in St. George, Utah, attending the theater, reading and more. 

Public reaction

“Lisa’s writing is warm and real. She is a clear story-teller and completes projects on time and with excellence. I love working with her.” – Terri Draper
It was my great pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with Lisa. Not only is she a wonderful writer possessing a great personality, but I found her trustworthy, professional and full of great ideas in addition to being among the most dependable people I know. She is constantly evolving within her writing profession and stretching her abilities. When I worked with her in the Features department (at Spectrum Media), I challenged her to go outside her comfort zone and she embraced this idea wholeheartedly. She takes constructive criticism very well and isn't afraid to seek direction and ask questions. I wholeheartedly recommend Lisa for any project worth doing right!” —David Cordero
