Together Jonathan and Lisa have two boys-David and Daniel. Both of her boys attend St. Monica Catholic School in Kalamazoo. In the summer, she enjoys camping in State parks, paddleboarding on local lakes, and biking with her boys. In recent years, she has taken a deep interest in gardening. In the winter, Lisa enjoys skiing. David and Daniel are good skiers, thanks to the many times she has brought the kids along with her. Besides skiing, Lisa enjoys taking her boys sledding whenever there is snow.
