    As Director,  Lisa leads the Sylvan Learning Center of Traverse City. A former Program Director at Interlochen Center for the Arts, Lisa chose a career in the tutoring business because she believes in the power of learning beyond the classroom. She studied at Wayne State University. When Lisa isn't at Sylvan, you'll find her swimming, planning her next road trip, or pursuing the perfect cheeseburger.
