She currently resides in Glen Echo Heights with her husband, Dan, their four children and dog, Gifford.

Four Questions with Lisa:

What led you to your Taekwondo practice?
I discovered Taekwondo through my children, who were 4 and 6 years old at the time. I used my Taekwondo practice to find strength and stress release while going through a divorce. As I progressed, my goal was to use the skills I learned to pay it forward and empower other women.

What is Your Favorite Post Workout Snack?
Toast and marmite – I like to eat my carbs right after I work out, and marmite has great B vitamins that give me a boost. My British husband introduced it to me (Thank you Dan!).
