Through her work as a reporter, Lisa was able to travel all over the world. It was the beginning of her passion to travel and report what she saw. She was able to work forty hour weeks and study at the same time at USC. By the age of twenty-five she was a co-host of the winning daytime show, "The View." But her first love was always for social reporting, so in 2001 she left the view to pursue a different focus in her career.
