Lisa likes to say her bucket list is very short: in early adulthood, she snowboarded, willingly jumped out of airplanes, rock climbed, scuba dived and traveled extensively. Now that the need for adrenaline has died down a bit, she prefers to ski, entertain and spend time on home improvement projects and photography. She is fluent in French.
