About Lise

I joined Legacy.com as a remote content screener in April 2008. Reading people stories and telling people stories are some of my favorite things to do! I also love meeting people, all of which makes Legacy a terrific place to work. You couldn’t ask for better co-workers. My background includes 14 years' experience as a national magazine editor, book editor, newspaper reporter, co-author of two books, and freelance writer. In addition to writing & editing content for both adults & children, I’ve enjoyed being a featured guest speaker at writers' conferences. I have degrees in Magazine Journalism and French, which came in handy one year when traveling in Old Lyons, France. On the way to dinner I found myself in the middle of a protest at city hall, so I took news photos. Though originally from Madison/Middleton Beach, Wisconsin, I’ve lived in Indianapolis for many years. This makes for divided NFL loyalties between the Green Bay Packers (Go Green Bay!) and the Indianapolis Colts in a post-Manning era. I enjoy spending time with family & friends, but especially like writing, traveling, reading new books, making jewelry, and keeping up with my two little nephews!
