When we booked Lisa as the keynote speaker for our annual Los Angeles brunch event to benefit our Norbertine Sisters, we knew she was going to deliver an excellent talk. We did not, however, anticipate the extent to which Lisa personally invests herself in the subject matter and the audience to which she has been entrusted. This is the secret to Lisa’s popularity and influence as a modern evangelist. She is all in.  As we had requested, Lisa addressed with clarity and impact the importance of the cloistered religious vocation and its context in a contemporary world, drawing on her own recent visit to the Norbertine monastery in advance of the event. From the moment she arrived at the door until she said her last goodbye, Lisa was fully present to the people that surrounded her, reaching out to guests she’d never met and staying late to be accessible to the many guests who wanted to meet her after they’d heard her powerful testimony.  Lisa is a dream keynote speaker whose enduring charm seems to spring from a genuine love for her faith and for the people she encounters in her vibrant ministry.
