Here are some things you may not have known about Lisa.

Hometown: Vancouver, BC

Describe your family: I am so lucky to have a wonderful husband and two amazing children (a 3 year old girl and a 1 year old boy).

Current job/career: Co-Founder and Programming Director at Lights Up Musical Theatre Schools, where I help kids build confidence and life skills while singing, dancing and acting.

What’s the most challenging part of being a parent? The exhaustion. I have gone from a casual coffee drinker to a 3 cup a day mom just to keep up with my kids. I wish I could siphon off a little of their energy!

What do you love the most? This is a big question. My kids, is the first answer that pops into my mind. My job, my students, theatre, reading, food… a warm, sunshiny day… 

What have you been doing to stay sane during Covid? My gratitude journal is the main tool in my mental health toolbox. That and walks. Lots, and lots of walks.

What is your go-to family friendly Lower Mainland activity? When my family has a day together, we love to go for a walk in Pacific Spirit Park. My kids love the freedom of being able to run up and down the path without holding our hands, and we all enjoy the fresh air, trees, flowers, and all of the dogs we meet on the path.

Favourite rainy Vancouver day activity? Pre-Covid, I would have answered The Aquarium. Sadly, that is not currently an option. These days, we break out the craft tub and make art. My daughter loves to paint and glue things. Anything. She just loves to use the glue.

Does juggling kids and career make you run on a 1% of the power charge?

Reading Time: 5 minutes
Life as a mom can be hectic, especially if you are juggling a career in addition to taking care of your kids. I personally think moms are very similar to cell phones because we’re always ‘on’ and play a critical role when it comes to communicating with loved ones and managing every aspect of our family’s life.

However, it’s important to remember that cell phone batteries run low and need some time to power up. They’re no good to us if we don’t allow them to recharge. Even the most expensive, glamorous, high-tech smartphones (aka, the moms who seem like they have everything together) need to be turned off and connected to a power source so the battery doesn’t die.
