About the Author

Lisa Lyons, BSN, RN, NCSN


Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing, Registered Nurse, Nationally Certified School Nurse

My mission is to encourage people to do, whatever God calls them to do, with freedom, energy, strength and passion.

– I am a Native Oregonian, grew up in Lake Oswego.  I first attended University of Idaho, but transferred to Washington State University in Spokane after receiving a Nursing Scholarship from the US Navy.   I proudly served our sailors, active and retired plus their families, at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth as a US Navy Nurse Corps Officer in Norfolk, VA for four years.

– My nursing career has included Hospital nursing, home health, health insurance.  I worked in Labor, Delivery and Postpartum for 12+ years, I was a Certified Diabetes Educator for 2 years, but I have been a School Nurse for the last 7 years.  My varied career has given me a wealth of knowledge and experience for which I am eternally grateful.

Personally, I am the proud (and busy) mother of 5 TEENAGERS (including one at college)!  Three of this children I were born to us.  Two of them we received from their birth parents, but whom are now ours legally, spiritually and emotionally.

I share this joy and responsibility with my husband of over 20 years who is a Children, Youth and Family Pastor to a large church in the Seattle Area.  Our house is loud and fun and I wouldn’t change a thing!
