Lisa is a newcomer to Modern Western Style Dancing and Calling. Lisa joined the Pittsburgh Area Callers and Cuers Association in 2012 and has over thirty records to her credit. Her unique style and fresh ideas have resulted in some of the most dynamic Singing Calls ever produced for women callers.

Lisa holds a degree in Business, is an accomplished equestrian, former 4H member and leader, and competitive Barrel Racer. In 2012 Lisa organized The Gold Rush Riders, an exhibition team that performs Modern Western Style Square Dancing on horseback. Lisa is a real cowgirl.

Lisa called at the 2012 WV and PA Square and Round Dance Conventions returning the following 3 years and called OH in 2014. Lisa called her first National Convention in Oklahoma City in 2013, returned to Little Rock in 2014 and Massachusetts in 2015. She is a member of Callerlab and serves on the Callerlab Committee On Youth, WIC, Marketing, Public Relations, and Record Producers Committee.

In 2014, Lisa and her partners, Scott and Shawn Brown, founded the Modern Pattern Dance Project and launched the Gold Rush Outlaws Modern Pattern Dance Group. This was followed later that year by the Western Wranglers. This project has opened MWSD to New Dancers year round by revolutionizing the way the activity is taught.

Lisa attended The Appalachian Callers School in Berkeley Springs, WV and can be seen calling regularly in the Tri-State area for the Outlaws, Wranglers, and Dip n Dives in Steubenville Ohio, as well as other area  clubs.

As an Executive Producer at Gold Rush Records, Lisa has made the world of Modern Western Style Square Dance Calling more accessible to women by providing female callers with music options never before available.
