I have spent the better part of my life seeking to live true. Now that I have reached beyond the halfway point, I realize the deep value of being who you are, living where you want to be, sharing your life with who you love and doing work that you enjoy. I am fortunate to have chosen all of these things for my life. Yet, it wasn't always easy . . .
Raised in the Midwestern suburbs of Chicago, I never felt like I belonged. A part of me always longed to be in California, even though I had never actually been there. In 1982, at 21, I made the move to San Francisco, sight unseen, where I lived for many years. An around-the-world production job landed me in Nashville, where I married and had my son, Zac. A divorce three years later brought me back to Chicago to raise him near my family, and I finally found my way back to the Bay Area in time for my 50th birthday.
As a new chapter of my life unfolds, I make my home in the beautiful Southwestern desert.
My 30+ year career began in the entertainment world working production and administration with A-List entertainers. A job layoff post-9/11 from a corporate marketing job led me to my first experience as a coaching client and I was hooked. I enrolled at the International Coach Academy where I received my certification as a Professional Certified Coach, later training as a Master Coach.
I've served as a Premier Success Coach with eWomen Network and as a Personal Success Coach with Nightingale-Conant. For 15 years I have been fortunate enough to help hundreds of people follow their dreams and make the choice to create the life they want.
Part of creating mine includes writing. It's a call I finally started answering. After successfully publishing several essays on love and family, I'm currently finishing my memoir, Black Sheep. For more on my writing, visit lisalucca.com.
As an inspirational speaker, I have addressed dozens of groups across the country about living true to who you are with passion and purpose.
My struggles in love along the way were many. After divorcing, I spent many years as a single mom struggling to find The One. As it turns out, I knew him all along, meeting him that first week I landed in California in 1982.
After more than 30 years of friendship, Mark and I share the kind of partnership I always dreamed of, working together to build a life that honors our relationship and our individual dreams. Our co-authored book, You Are Loved...an email memoir, shares our story via a decade of letters to one another about life, love, and the choices that shape our lives. After 8 years as "apartners" in California, we now share a lovely home in southern New Mexico.
