I met Lisa over 20 years ago, before her marriage to her "Superman" husband Ben and her two beautiful children.We met in our acupuncture course of studies. It was always clear to those of us studying acupuncture who had the most Fire energy....Lisa! Lisa's ebullient nature and quick contagious smile were the hallmark of how she walked her journey through this life. Lisa's vitality through all her trials and challenges is truly humbling and an inspiration. I will never forget Lisa and the many amazing gifts she had within her. To a remarkable human spirit.
Gentle healing to the entire family.

Gentle Healing Spirit
Saw Lisa at the Lonnie Jarrett class at the Won Institute at the end of October 2014. She looked so beautiful and her kind and gentle spirit were so present there. Her presence as a healer was also clear. I feel so fortunate to have had a few moments chatting with her and Ben that day.
Lisa was one of the most positive, vibrant, joyful people I have known. She was always so excited about people, life, art, events... everything! Even in her last month, she was excited about my new job. I will miss her enthusiasm and her amazing energy but she lives on in her children, through her art and in the amazing example she gave all of us of how to embrace each day. Lisa V.
A generous teacher full of joy and passion
I feel so lucky to have met Lisa. Though I only spent a few hours with her, as a student at the Won Institute, I felt touched by her presence. Her generosity, love, and such fullness of heart were inspiring. I know that she will be deeply missed by countless people. Lisa left beyond a legacy of love and fierce compassion.
I feel blessed to have been Lisa's friend. Lisa taught me so much - lessons about how to live and how to fight and how to surrender. Lisa was the embodiment of joyous love of life - she was fully present in each moment and always seemed to embrace whatever was being presented no matter how challenging it was. Thanks to Lisa I was introduced to yoga 20+ years ago, to the healing power of acupuncture, to the power of a daily meditation practice. I have wonderful artistic reminders of Lisa throughout my home - her paintings and her jewelry fill my daily life with beauty. Lisa exemplified a true love of life and openness to others. I will miss her friendship and her smile. She lives on in me in so many ways and for that I am truly grateful.

Lisa, you've made such an impression and a difference in so many lives. While you are missed, your legacy lives on in those of us whose lives you touched.
The "Younger Cousin"
OK ... so the many summers spent on the cape with "Uncle Dave's" family did leave a bit of an indelible mark on my life. I remember being blamed for the escape of an Irish Setter in the middle of the night ... an incredible lightening storm where power was lost but supper wasn't ... John Wyatt closing games for the Red Sox ... being convinced to jump into the water at Sagamore beach up to my chest (very cold ... still remember it cousin Dave) ... but my favorite memory of Lisa is from later than that ... when I graduated from high school and she and Uncle Dave took the time to discuss the future that faced me ... decisions about the importance of family versus career ... concepts I can honestly say didn't really strike home until my second marriage - and the absolute joy I have experienced as a result of truly living in the moment. I've often reflected on that evening with Uncle Dave and Lisa ... the bond they had (maybe finally) developed and the absolute uniqueness of the person who was my cousin Lisa. She never knew this by the way ... but I want all of you who remain to know how much of a difference she made and I hope that somehow she knows this as well.
Love to all,
