Lisa is passionate about her work as a reporter with a focus on medical and health issues. She covers breaking health news, new treatments and advancements in the medical field, health and wellness stories and of course, the courageous people dealing with health issues and life threatening illnesses.

Lisa works with many organizations including, Think Cure, the Dodger’s official charity aimed at finding treatments and eventually a cure for cancer, the Arthritis Foundation, and the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Whether it’s co-hosting the local MDA Labor Day Telethon with her colleagues for the past five years or helping raise money and awareness at an event, it’s a charity that is close to her heart. She is also involved in Augie’s Quest, dedicated to finding new treatments and a cure for ALS, (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease). It was started by her friend, Augie Nieto, a pioneer in the fitness industry who was diagnosed in March of 2005 with ALS.

Lisa is a graduate of the University of Southern California where she studied broadcast journalism at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.

Before working in Los Angeles, Lisa worked as a reporter and anchor at the CBS affiliate in Columbia, South Carolina and at Cox Communications in Palos Verdes, California.

While in Los Angeles, Lisa earned several Emmy nominations for her health reporting and won an Emmy award for Best Feature Reporter. In South Carolina, she won two regional Emmy awards for series and consumer reporting, as well as a regional Edward R. Murrow award.
