Lisa was born in Bristol, England and always had a love for travel and for languages. After college she moved to Brussels, Belgium where she worked as a national and international conference and working group coordinator at NATO Headquarters; subsequently at SHAPE Headquarters in Mons, Belgium and then at the NATO Headquarters on Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany.
Lisa then moved to California where she lived and worked and ultimately she met her husband who was from Phoenix, Arizona. They decided to leave Los Angeles and move to Phoenix where she went to work for the Formula 1 organisers as an event hospitality coordinator. When the Formula 1 organisers left Phoenix, she was offered the opportunity to relocate to Canada to work with Nascar but having settled into life in Phoenix she declined the opportunity.
After the birth of their twin sons, Lisa wanted to be a stay at home Mum. However after about 1 year she created an internet website which gave her the opportunity to work from home. The site became very successful and ultimaely Stephan gave up his real estate career and dedicated himself to promoting the site. Since then they have created entrepreneurial opportunities where they can work from home and be able to travel freely.
When they moved to France from the USA the concept for Chateaux Escapes France became a reality.
