Mississippi Native started married life in Michigan for eight years until moving to Central Florida in 2020.
She interned at Walt Disney World in 2011, where she met her husband. They were married at Disney’s Wedding Pavillion in 2013.
Since then, Shelbi has worked in sales, event coordination, travel planning, and social media marketing.
After having children whom both had developmental delays, she quit her day job. She channeled her energy into therapy, research, and educating herself on tools for children and their parents with Sensory Processing Disorders and Autism.
Now, she merges her passions for motherhood, travel, and education on their family platform, Mouse and Moore.
From the Big Apple to the Sunshine State, Lisa has lived in Oviedo since 2011. She’s the proud mom of two daughters, ages 10 and 16. During the pandemic, she added the first family dog, a cutie named Lexi to the family.
Lisa will tell you that getting married for the first time at 40 isn’t for the weak and having her first baby at 41 was both an exciting and scary period in her life. She’s a self-proclaimed older mom who uses her life experience as a guide in parenting. Having adopted her first child as a single mom, she brings a unique perspective to this thing called life.
Lisa has worked with individuals with special needs for 30 years and has a Bachelors and Masters degree in Social Work. With additional expertise in behavioral health, adoption and self-care, she’s a tireless advocate for families (especially moms and kids) who need extra support in their lives.
When not running her special education advocacy practice or shuffling her daughters to cheer and dance, she enjoys photography, crafting and checking out new restaurants. It’s been important for Lisa to stay connected with friends and family back home but also spending time with friends locally.
