Despite living with cystic fibrosis and receiving a double lung transplant eight years ago, Lisa lived life to the fullest. She was grateful for her second chance at life and donated many hours as a Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates (KODA) Ambassador Volunteer. She was a member of Team Kentucky and competed in various events at three Transplant Games She had a passion for traveling with her favorite places being Arizona and Iceland. She had a special bond with animals, especially horses and dogs. A lifelong horse lover, she spent some of her happiest moments riding her horse, Logi, and on her cowgirl ranch adventures. She was a kid at heart, a huge Harry Potter fan, and thoroughly enjoyed being the "cool" aunt with all of her nieces and nephews. She loved 80s music and was a super fan of Duran Duran. She will be greatly missed and always remembered for her contagious smile and kindness toward all.
