Lisa has worked in the wine industry for 20 years, the most recent eight in education with the Society of Wine Educators and the French Wine Society. In these roles, she has authored and/or edited wine study manuals and developed or expanded certification programs for the wine trade.
In her free-time, she writes fiction...naturally, with a glass of wine at the elbow.
She is a Maryland Master Gardener and puts that training into practice in her sizable vegetable garden. To assist her, she has recruited the services of a very helpful staff: two Chinese geese, two mini-Rex rabbits and 2,000 red wigglers (worms)... all of which are “master composters”. An adopted feral cat guards the perimeters and keeps the groundhogs at bay.
The summer she ambitiously attempted to re-populate the neighborhood with 100 ring-neck pheasant chicks is chronicled in her blog entitled “Avian Flu”.
