Lisa grew up in Byron Illinois and moved no Nebraska with her boyfriend Dakota in 2017 to go to school at Iowa Western. She realized her love for animals when she was young and grew up with border collies and loved spending time with them outside. She was always bringing home animals and turning their house into a zoo! Lisa ended up adopting Millie, a beagle mix, from the clinic she did her Iowa Western observation hours at. She also has two cats, Iris, who is lazy as can be, and Ivy, who loves to cuddle and play with toys. In her free time she likes to pet sit, go to concerts, travel, and spending time with her friends and family.
