A Narrative Coach
With compassion and creative talents, Lisa has taken over eighteen years of corporate experience to design a platform specifically for women. In 2016, after publishing Unveiled Beauty: Handwritten Stories From a Poetic Heart, Lisa envisioned a space where women wouldn’t feel so alone. A space that thrived on inclusivity and diversity. A space where we built bridges and heart connections. Lisa dreamt of a space where women could share their stories, be themselves, heal, thrive, and inspire others.
Today, Lisa provides more than a safe space for women to share their stories. As a narrative coach certified in narrative therapy, Lisa uses storytelling elements and narrative therapy principles to guide women on their personal growth and empowerment journeys.
As a public speaker, expert panelist, workshop facilitator, performance storyteller, and regularly featured podcast guest, Lisa frequently discusses how our narratives can lead to growth, healing, and change.
I declare myself neither a writer nor a poet
Like my Native ancestors, sitting around a fire
Beyond the smoke filled air… I appear
Holding hands with a cast of characters
Re-enacting their story, re-imagining their pain
As the moonlight opens its arms,
A brave new warrior surfaces
I am more than a writer, more than a poet
I speak in your native tongue
Revealing the secrets of your heart
I am … a storyteller
– Lisa Harris –
Lisa is a masterful storyteller and courageous leader who shares her lived experiences through social media, events, public appearances, and one-on-one conversations.
As a multi-racial woman, raised by an immigrant mother from the Philippines and a Caucasian father with Indigenous roots (Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe.), Lisa’s lived experience and perspective is multi-layered. She discovered at any early age that she never quite fit in anywhere, yet she was home everywhere.
From race to growing up in a predominately white, rural Midwestern town to being a first-generation college graduate to managing over $250M at the height of her corporate career to publishing a book and founding her own business, Lisa seamlessly experiences life at the intersection of many different worlds and believes our stories are what heals and connects us.
Lisa is a mother, wife, sister and friend whose living her purpose. Personally and professionally, Lisa values authenticity, vulnerability, and connection in her pursuit to build bridges and spread love through the lens of our stories.
“Lisa speaks from a place of vulnerability and authenticity. Her personal story and poetic moments provide a long lasting impact on the audience and her message motivates others to recognize their own bravery. Lisa reminds us that bravery is acknowledging our fear, but not letting it stop us.”
“Confidence and compassion. Strength and recognition. Lisa Harris crafts introspective journeys and challenges conventional thought through lyrical storytelling.”
“Lisa’s ability to engage her audience in a one-of-a-kind way is absolutely empowering. I’ve never witnessed so many women feel validated, appreciated, and loved collectively as I have when Lisa speaks her truth and allows such a precious and unique platform for women of all walks of life to share their stories and their truth.”
