As a fourth generation Studio City resident, the San Fernando Valley has always been close to Lisa's heart. Lisa's grandparents moved to the Studio City area from Los Angeles in 1937 and built a ranch style home on Carpenter Ave which remained family occupied until 1998. In fact, her parents married in the back yard. It was in this home that Lisa also lived when married, and during her sons' early childhood. Her mother attended Carpenter Ave Elem, Walter Reed Jr High (previously named North Hollywood Jr High) and North Hollywood High School in the 1930's and 40's. Both her grandmother and great grandmother worked at Canoga park high school in the 1940's and 50's and drove through orange groves to get to work, or so the story goes. Much has changed since that time, and a few things are the still same. It remains a popular and sought after place to live decade after decade.
Lisa has been a Valencia resident since 1998, and raised her sons, now 15 and 18, in the Santa Clarita Valley…another sought after place to live and raise a family. From the wonderful paseo walking trails and park systems, to the award winning public schools, the Santa Clarita Valley has grown by leaps and bounds over the last 20 years and has something for everyone.
