Lisa Van De Graaff

Lisa is a mother, wife, daughter, student, and licensed massage therapist. She has a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and thirteen years of experience in corporate accounting and project management in addition to certifications in several bodywork modalities (Swedish, LaStone, Manual Lymph Drainage, Breast Massage, and Zen Shiatsu (in process)).

Travel, photography, home improvements, and food are Lisa’s passions, and she considers herself immeasurably blessed to be sharing life’s journey with her daughter and life partner. While the commitments to motherhood have momentarily taken her attention away from international travel, Lisa and her travel companion plan to resume annual travels to Europe (for the art and food) and Africa (for safari) in the next few years. Domestic travel usually involves cities with good shopping and flavorful dining.

Keeping journals has been a lifelong outlet for expression of creativity and emotion for Lisa. Lisa plans to use these journals as an outline for periodic posts to MomsGetRealâ„¢ in hopes of sparking creativity and joy in others.
