"Lisa is an amazing speaker who captivates her audience with the way she weaves research, personal stories, and real life into relevant advice. She gives parents tools that allow them to be more effective while instilling confidence and a feeling that you're-not-in-this-alone. Lisa does not lecture or judge; she speaks frankly and always has a unique and knowledgable view on parenting topics"- Robin Eisen, Co-President, Shaker Heights High School PTO

Her warmth and humour engages them, putting them at ease as she communicates an understanding of both their compassion and commitment to their students and the challenges they face.

Lisa is, without question, the most popular professional development speaker we've had in the eight years I've been Head of School"- Susanna Jones, Head of School, Holton Arms School 

"I have been consistently amazed by Lisa's ability to meaningfully connect with teens on topics of great importance to their overall well being.
