She graduated from Sacred Heart Academy in Mt.

She absolutely loved being a veterinarian, working at the Broomfield Veterinary Hospital in Broomfield, Colorado from 1999 until the time of her death. Lisa was a beloved and devoted daughter, sister, aunt, niece, friend, and veterinarian. She was an avid runner, competing in countless road races and marathons. She absolutely loved living in Colorado, but always called Michigan her home.
She also loved reading, listening to her favorite podcasts, attending concerts of her favorite bands whenever she had the chance, and cooking.
