Lisa knew from an early age that she wanted to be an attorney, inspired by her family’s acceptance of more than 70 foster care children into her family’s home. Her family adopted four children. It was through this background that she had her first experience with legal professionals and the Court and determined that she would become an attorney and advocate. She completed her Bachelor’s degree from Alma College a year ahead of her peers and in the top 10% of her class. Lisa obtained her Juris Doctor from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law in 1995.
