Lisa is fortunate to have gained many accolades over her law career, but she’s most proud of being one of Triangle Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” list in 2002 and the Triangle’s list of Top 25 Women in Business in the Triangle in 2004. Lisa was also inducted into the YWCA Academy of Women for the “Professions” category in 2003, which recognized her work, dedication and positive impact on the community. She graduated cum laude from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and received her J.D. degree from Wake Forest University School of Law.

In 1997, Lisa received the Outstanding Young Lawyer Award for her service as chair of the Domestic Violence Commission for the North Carolina Bar Association’s Young Lawyer Division and, in 2005, was appointed by Governor Easley, no less, to serve as chair for the North Carolina Domestic Violence Commission.

Lisa is considered to be an expert on family law issues. Once again, however, you won’t hear her boasting, despite the fact that she is part of Interact’s Speakers’ Bureau and has been a guest lecturer at Duke University School of Law and Campbell Law School. Or even though she is an elected member of the Wake County Bar Association Board of Directors and the Council of the Family Law Section of the North Carolina Bar Association.

Her leadership skills in her field are almost Wonder Woman-esque. Lisa is past president of the Women’s Center of Wake County Board of Directors and the current Co-Chair of Wake County Family Lawyers. She’s a member of the Wake County Volunteer Lawyers Program Advisory Board and Co-Chair and founding board member of Project Together, a Wake County Domestic violence pro bono project. She has served as the North Carolina Bar Association Liaison to the North Carolina Medical Society Task Force on Domestic Violence and as a member of the UNC Hospitals Domestic Violence Intervention Advisory Board.

You needn’t worry about Lisa suffering from exhaustion, though. She took a three-month sabbatical in 2004 to travel through China and Southeast Asia. Of course, she did spend most of the trip bicycling. Maybe she should have a rest!
