Lissa was born in 1988 near the small town of Green River in Wyoming. At the age of 12, she moved to Georgetown, Texas, another small town just north of Austin. Here, she went to Forbes Middle School and Georgetown High School. Forbes Middle School was a new school and Lissa was part of the first graduating class. For her senior year in High School, she moved to Fresno (really Clovis, another small town), California, where she attended Buchanan High School. In all three places she met the best of people that helped shape her life. Fairly quickly, everyone knew that Lissa loved to sing. There was only one rule her mama taught her from the moment Lissa could speak; she could sing anywhere she wanted - in the store, in the car, at church, anywhere she wanted - but she had to sing in key. Quiet, smart, and demure, Lissa made a mark in all three hometowns. She was voted Student of the Year in the Select Womens Choir at Georgetown High School where her choir directors took them to several championships, and her choir at Buchanan High School also took several awards including Best Overall Performance at the western U.S. competition held in Disneyland, California. During her sophomore year at Georgetown High School, she sang the United States National Anthem for the Round Rock Express at the Dell Diamond Stadium in front of 9,000 people. In California, she went on to make All-State Choir. But it didnt stop there, she was selected after a rigorous screening process to become one of 120 members to be part of the prestigious United States Honor Chorus, THE SOUND OF AMERICA, which toured in Europe during the summer of 2006, (the summer before she started college at the University of California, Davis). At the age of 17, she recorded her first musical CD. Lissa has grown up to value her faith and human life, and strives to help others. This is the part you wont believe, while completing all this singing, the following are just some of the other things she also accomplished.
  • Summer Institute for the Gifted, Vassar College, New York
  • Summer Institute for Gifted Girls ("Tech Trek" sponsored by the American Association of University Women), Stanford University, CA
  • Georgetown Youth Advisory Board (over 200 hours of Community Service)
  • University Medical Trauma Center (over 40 hours of volunteer service)
  • National Honor Society, National Honor Roll, California Scholarship Federation
