Lisa Nelson was born and raised in Cleveland, OH and attended the University of Florida where she received a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations. After graduation, Lisa moved to Los Angeles to see what the West Coast had to offer.
Upon moving to Los Angeles in 2002 she started working in the personal publicity field, representing high profile clients in the entertainment industry. She expanded her expertise at a boutique PR firm working on lifestyle and consumer accounts as well as event planning. She then switched gears in 2005 to the non-profit world and served as the Director of Membership at Stephen S. Wise Temple, where she also planned events for the young adult community. She left the working world to become a full-time mother in 2012.
Lisa became involved in CFG in 2014 after a friend invited her to the Soul Cycle event. She quickly learned how great the organization is and continues to involve herself in all aspects of the board.
Lisa and her husband Matthew currently live in West Los Angeles with their boys Benny and Theo and two dogs Luci and Stanley.
