Lisa had a vision of a nature centered healing place in 2014 while experiencing the beauty and magnificence of Capon Springs Resort in West Virginia. She envisioned a place of respite and relaxation for all those in need but especially those who did not regularly have access to the innate healing properties of nature. She sought a way to bring those experiences to busy folks in Reston. Out of that desire, Rise was born.
Lisa has a passion for learning and has been focused on her own growth and development since getting divorced in 2009. She often remarks that its out of the greatest difficulty that the greatest growth can occur. For the past few years, Lisa has been studying the energy system the body and various healing techniques as well as spending a lot of time in the woods with her dog. She has seen the improvements in her own health and those around her when employing these techniques. So now that her children are all young adults and self sufficient, she is thrilled to be dedicating to helping others through Rise. In ancient times, Lisa received a degree in Finance and Marketing from the University of Virginia. Those skills are now being put to good use!
