Originally from Wisconsin, she now resides in                La Crescent, MN.  She is a self proclaimed harvester of humor, a goofy friend, embarrassing mom and prank ninja!  She also runs an award-winning comedy troupe called Heart of La Crosse.

As if all of that isn’t enough, she has a full-time day job as an administrative assistant and records manager at a police department.  

This event is free and open to the public.  Lisa will have books available for sale.
