Guided by her four decades personal experience with secondhand drinking (SHD), a concept she first introduced in 2009, and working to overcome its impact, Lisa has spent more than a decade researching, writing, consulting, and speaking on a range of SHD-related topics (e.g., addiction, substance misuse, mental illness, co-occurring disorders and childhood trauma), all anchored in 21st century brain research.
Lisa is the author of eleven books (two of which have been translated into Spanish and published by Editores Mexicanos, Unidos, S.A.), as well as a nationally recognized keynote speaker with over twenty-five years public speaking experience. She has appeared as an expert guest in a variety of television, radio, and Internet radio programs, as well as authored hundreds of blog posts and articles for other publications.
She concurrently explored a wide range of topics in her writing and speaking career, including: civil and women’s rights issues (publishing four biographies on women leaders in these movements), results-oriented workplace initiatives, career search and job hunting techniques, voter registration and empowerment, substance abuse, addiction and the family side of recovery.
She served as a nationally recognized keynote speaker on women’s history from 2000 to 2012.
