When she goes to the waiting room to get patients for their appointment, she always has a spring in her step and a smile on her face! Lisa loves the friendly environment that is around Sarah Mowery Dentistry whether it is the patients or the other staff members.

Lisa, like most of the rest of the staff, is from this small community herself. She has a son who graduated from Wayne Trace/Vantage in 2017, her alma mater.

Lisa went on after high school to receive her Business degree from the University of Northwestern Ohio.
