Lisa's love of the arts began during visits to her grandfather's art gallery in Cleveland and continued during frequent family visits into New York City for musical performances, plays and, of course, The Metropolitan Museum of Art. After receiving her B.A. in Art History from the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio, Lisa moved to Lexington to complete her M.A. in Art History at the University of Kentucky.

Lisa's professional career includes experience as a museum curator and preparator. Her philanthropy experience began in service to her daughter's ballet passion as president of the Bluegrass Youth Ballet. Joining UK in Philanthropy first in the College of Arts & Science, Lisa has served the College of Fine Arts since 2017.
