Lisa’s career began in her hometown of Overland Park, KS and has taken her to Broadway and points in between. This winter, Lisa dove under the sea with Disney's The Little Mermaid, coming to a city near you!

On the First National Tour of the Tony Award winning revival of Pippin, Lisa had the pleasure of performing the role of Leading Player over 100 times! Other Broadway credits include The Addams Family (Wednesday Addams understudy) and Ragtime (Emma Goldman understudy).  Other New York credits include the reading of "Anastasia" with the legendary Angela Lansbury, as well as her portrayal of Sam Peterson in the original American musical "Empire".  Recently, Lisa had her debut at the historic Gateway Playhouse in Bellport NY where she portrayed Magenta in The Rocky Horror Show!  In addition, Lisa has worked extensively throughout regional theatre, including The Paper Mill Playhouse, Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, Sacramento Music Circus, The MUNY, Kansas City Starlight, The Shakespeare Theatre Company, North Carolina Theater, Maine State Music Theater, The Arvada Center of Arts and Humanities, Portland Center Stage, and many more.  Favorite roles include Florence Vassy in Chess, Eva Peron in Evita, Velma Kelly in Chicago, and The Homeless Woman in A New Brain.

Lisa is incredibly grateful for the opportunities she has had and for what lies ahead.  Stay tuned for updates!
