About Lisa's Teaching:

Lisa studied with more direct students of Mr. Chekhov than anyone in the world and discovered amazing differences in their individual understandings, which accounts for many variations in what one learns of his work. She emphasizes an expansive interpretation of the tools that unites the many points of view she was taught and applies it to all styles of stage and camera work as well as marketing, promotion, sales, and self development. In coaching youth, professionals and educators from across the world, Lisa calls for the strengthening of practical use of the spirit of love, cutting edge science, athletics and compassion to reach students of differing learning preferences. She is passionate about the ending of aggressive fear based teachings and supports cultivating the self aware, self compassionate, healthy human.
