Lisa Marie Conklin

Lisa Marie grew up in Michigan, in a subdivision full of families, where she and her friends rode bikes, created fake newspapers, and pretended they were news anchors and talk show hosts. She has fond memories of weekends at Higgins Lake, in a family cabin which her grandpa built. They would take a pontoon to an island on the lake and sing "Put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up” on the voyage over.

These days, Lisa Marie’s passions include cooking, and repurposing things from second hand stores and salvage yards. Her best advice? Follow your heart, but take your brain with you.
