Elizabeth Rivers ("Lisa") is a North Carolina native that is a graduate of Raleigh's own historic Needham Broughton high school. She went on to receive her undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina and her J.D. from Campbell University, where she graduated with honors. Though trained as an attorney, Lisa's true passion is her beautiful family: two teenaged children, a husband of twenty years, and two very spoiled Springer Spaniels. She loves cooking, off shore fishing, reading, word games and a witty sense of humor. She lives and works in the heart of Raleigh's most traditional and established neighborhoods.
