Lisa grew up in Spencerport, NY, the only sister that included a pack of three brothers. Her love of cooking was fostered at an early age and she carried that passion into adulthood. She loved the water and consequently became an avid swimmer and lifeguard in high school, enjoying many summers at the family cottage on Conesus Lake. Her mother Debbie, being a lifelong educator, instilled in Lisa a dedication to her own schooling. She followed in her father Phil’s accomplished footsteps and pursued her education at Xavier in accounting. Eventually she found herself back in Rochester to continue her career. She worked at several companies over the years until settling into a role working with her father. Lisa met Michael in 2011 and they soon became inseparable. Their love of their dogs and the outdoors were just some of the commonalities that led them to be united in marriage in 2014. Lisa became a valued member of the Rochester trail running scene, not only supporting Michael in his own running, but running many races herself. Despite a long battle with Crohn’s disease, Lisa was ever the caretaker, always watching out for her parents, brothers, sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews. She and Michael built a life together over the last seven years that will be cherished forever. She will be missed by so many.
