CCMM is Classical Conversations’ publishing company. As lead curriculum developer she encourages and equips parents and families through program and curriculum development, speaking, and podcasting.
Lisa and her family joined the CC family in 2004 when she began directing Challenge B. Since then she has served as the state manager for North Carolina, the original program manager for Challenge B, the lead Practicum developer, and speaker trainer since 2013.
She graduated with a B.A. in Political Science from Wake Forest University in 1985. In her spare time Lisa loves reading, decorating projects, exercising, and entertaining.
Lisa loves puns and tells lots of stories about her family’s homeschool journey. Her kids are already preparing to cringe!
