In the fall of 1990, Lisa became the assistant to Jim Longbotham for the Groesbeck High School & Junior High tennis teams and worked in this position until 1995 when she would take on employment at the Limestone County District Attorney’s Office until spring of 1999. Later that year, Lisa moved to Dallas to pursue a job as a paralegal at Norton Rose Fulbright, and she worked there until her retirement in May 2018.
Lisa is loved by everyone who knows her, the kids she coached, her co-workers, her friends and, most of all, her family.
She enjoys traveling with her daughters, hens/chicks, and family. In March of 2021, Lisa was able to go on a mother/daughter trip to Hawaii which will always be remembered as one of the most fun times of her life.
She takes pride in all the accomplishments that her kids and grandkids have achieved and is excited about her oldest granddaughter’s upcoming wedding and the addition of a new grandson to her family.
