Her love for Spanish, outdoor adventure, sports and the opportunity to work with student-athletes brought her to Lake Placid and the National Sports Academy in 2003. Lisa was named Interim Head of School in July of 2014. Lisa loves participating in all of the activities the Adirondack Park has to offer with her husband Randy, also a teacher at NSA, and their seven year old son, Jonathan.
