More About Lisa Arnett

"I face life with boldness, openness, and honesty. It enables me to live authentically. By most societal standards, I’m considered a confident woman. I have heard people reflect this to me, my entire life. The reflection is based on what is seen outwardly: My walk is with a purpose, I share ideas, including political opinions that may provide a teamwork setting. I have a joy and passion to provide solutions to a clouded atmosphere. I enjoy fine art collecting and museums, philanthropy, mentorship, reading and writing, gardening, and attending performing arts and social events."
