Lisa has always embraced the big challenges…it’s just who she is.
Growing up the daughter of an immigrant Mexican mom and American Dad in the small border town of Douglas, Arizona, Lisa knew that life was going to be filled with challenges.
But she knew what it would take to succeed…Early in her life, her mom, Fran, made it clear to Lisa that service, sacrifice and hard work were the keys to success.
She knew that she would have to fight to get to the next level….
And Lisa did…graduating in the top 5% of her class at Douglas High School. She went on to attend the University of Arizona, Pima Community College and earned her Bachelors and an MBA from the University of Phoenix.
She knew that to succeed in any career, it would take courage, determination, and focus…
That’s why she followed in the entrepreneurial footsteps of her Mom, Fran, who after learning to be a floral designer in high school opened her own flower shops when Lisa was growing up.
Indeed, after a successful career in higher education, Lisa sought new opportunities. And, like her Mom before her, she took on the big challenge of becoming a small business owner and a licensed real estate agent in 2018.
In just three years, Lisa earned “REALTOR of the Year” for the Tucson Association of Realtors (TAR), was elected to the Arizona Association of REALTORS in 2022 and named President of the Tucson Chapter for the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO). She also serves as a Commissioner and Treasurer for the Pima County Tucson Women's Commission.
