I know how challenging it can be, with all of the competing priorities, to make your vision a reality.
Together we can make it happen!
Through my experiences

as a teacher, school administrator, curriculum coordinator, school board member, consultant, and licensed superintendent I’ve honed in on the strategies necessary to elevate the educational experience for all stakeholders and in turn positively influence your life and the lives of those around you.

I know how important your job is and I also know how challenging and stressful it can be! In addition to serving as your strategic consulting partner or leadership coach my goal is to empower transformation for you and your staff. I help school leaders (including teachers and counselors), like you, manage stress and anxiety through systems and structures so that you can lead a healthier, happier, and more productive life.

From those who have worked with Lisa

Angelica, Grant Director

"Lisa's ability to be so therapeutic and nurturing along with her advice on situations that she has dealt with in her previous experiences and how she overcame them was more helpful than can be explained. The fact is she is willing to go above her obligations to ensure the students get an experience they will remember. That is what makes Lisa's work so special."

Rodney, Dean of Students

"Lisa is resilient, works tirelessly to complete any task and is a great partner to work with. She is willing to go the extra miles to bring perfection. You are getting great integrity, and someone who goes above and beyond the call of duty when you bring EdSolutions Group on board!"

I wrote the e-book,

"7 Steps to Reclaim Your School & Sanity!"

An Action Plan for Immediate Impact! because one of the biggest comments new administrators make is “I didn’t know it was going to be like this. Does it ever get better?” For some it doesn’t. The cycle of reactivity continues year after year while your health and happiness is impacted. I don’t want that for you. And, if you are living that life right now, it’s time to make a change! I can help you!

I developed the 7 Powerful Practices Model, which this e-book is based on, while I was a school administrator. When you register for Joyful Educator Lab you get your own copy of the e-book to help you elevate your school and life!

Food

I love anything and everything food related...cooking, food photography and eating out at my favourite restaurants. You can find some of my food and recipes at @AntiGlutenGirl on Instagram.

Travel!

I love to travel and especially love South America, Miami, London, Italy, Santa Barbara and the Dominican Republic.

Health & Wellness

I love my vitamins, supplements, exercising and smoothies. I might just turn into an avocado I eat so many of them! When you join the Joyful Educator Membership the deep dive into the 7 Powerful Practices including the Wellness Module will give you a look inside my routines, recipes, food prep and more.

The Arts!

I enjoy plays, musicals, the orchestra, architecture, photography, art museums, mid-century design, music and record collecting. I enjoy everything from Dolly Parton to Beastie Boys, Foo Fighters and Snoop Dog. Concerts are always a yes and my eclectic tastes have taken me to see U2, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Jay Z, Billy Joel and the list goes on. 

Pop Culture & Politics!

Former history and government teacher here so I am a bit of a news junkie! Believe it or not, I can also talk some Real Housewives, Below Deck and celebrity gossip! I enjoy documentaries on pop culture and politics and unsolved mysteries.

Reading!

Reading is a life-long love of mine that was instilled in me at a young age. I particularly enjoy reading a wide array of genres including memoirs, medical/wellness, personal development, design and architecture.

Human Potential & Productivity

I enjoy learning about human potential and productivity and being a purveyor of possibility in the lives of the people I work with! It is my mission to inspire others in all ways. The #edsolutionschat conversation about leadership, mindset and more can be found at this YouTube link
