Lisa Stephens

Lisa counts herself among that rare and unusual species: The native Floridian. Born and raised in Miami Beach, Lisa considers herself an honorary “Conch” by virtue of her frequent family car trips to the Keys. As Tinsley’s very first producer, Lisa grew her career, had a great time and won her share of Addys, Emmys and Angels. But eventually Hollywood called and Lisa followed her dream to Los Angeles, where she pursued a career in the TV and motion picture industry.

Ironically, Lisa’s Hollywood ending actually had a Hollywood ending, bringing her full circle right back to Tinsley, where it all began. Lisa’s advertising background includes Carnival Cruise Lines, Florida Department of Tourism, Celebrity Cruises, Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau and of course, her beloved Florida Keys & Key West.

Oh, and when it comes to cats, Hemingway had nothing on Lisa. She’s the proud “mother” of five. So far.
