Lisa Batchelder | Coach and Facilitator
Lisa began her work life after graduating with dual degrees in English and education. While in the classroom, she became fascinated with how students learn, especially those who struggled in a traditional instructional setting. Creating curricula that addressed these issues led Lisa to start her own educational consulting practice in 1999. Lisa’s skills as a content writer and instructor soon found a home in the corporate world, where she wrote for various publications. Using her experience to bridge content and learning, Lisa soon found herself in the role of a corporate facilitator and coach.
A lifelong writer, Lisa published her first novel, Dandelion Salad, in 2003 and is currently working on her second book. Her literary voice can also be read through her blog Who Knew, a running platform for her slice of life pieces.
Blessed with two young boys and a trampoline to wear them out, Lisa has come to appreciate how much we learn in the moment and utilizes this in her coaching, facilitating, and writing. Her favorite author, Mark Twain, put it best: “A man who carries a cat by the tail, learns something he could learn in no other way.”
