Lisa Driscoll

A Colorado native, Lisa left the beautiful mountains to go to the University of Maryland to earn degrees in broadcast journalism and vocal performance. This is her seventh year serving with FOCUS. After co-producing a family newspaper with her brother called the Driscoll Gazette in elementary school, she is grateful that FOCUS is humoring her with more opportunities to write outside of her role in Donor Relations. In addition to writing, you’ll likely find her hiking, singing, climbing, sipping bourbon, or cooking.
