Lisa says, “I am a mother of four, a military spouse, a military mom, and a former corrections officer... I am the new face of politics. I know what is to struggle… have had bankruptcies, car repossession, foreclosure, and eviction. I’ve received food assistance and free medical care for my children. Some people are quick to blame victims for their situations; I say that’s ridiculous.” She attended Temple University in the architecture program but did not earn a degree until she returned to school as an adult and mother of three children.
