Lisa also has experience in appellate practice before both the North Dakota Supreme Court and the Montana State Supreme Court.

Lisa graduated summa cum laude from the University of North Dakota in December of 2008 with a Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice Studies. She interned for the U.S. Senate in Washington, DC before attending law school.
