On weekends, Lisa trades in her business suit for a fireproof jumpsuit and helmet to race her modified 1995 BMW M3, which she actually helped build. More than 10 years ago, as part of a self-described mid-life crisis, Lisa started racing BMWs, eventually receiving her racing license in 2008.
“I didn’t grow up watching racing on TV but when I got introduced to racing it became a whole new field. I could learn about cars, about strategy and about mechanical bits and pieces that help a car go faster.”
Lisa competes in BMW Club Racing and NASA (National Auto Sport Association) events and has twice won BMW Car Club of America champion in the South Central Region of her class.
“Racing is all about learning, strategy, preparedness, and passion. The very things that have helped me win great results for my clients.”
Lisa is typically the only woman racing at top speeds of about 135 miles per hour at 304 acre MotorSport Ranch in Cresson, Texas, south of Fort Worth, as well as other road courses around Texas and across the country.
“Problem solving is one of the things I love about racing and about being a lawyer. The “MacGyverism” of things, figuring out how to solve problems quickly and efficiently. There a very few women who race at the local level, but for BMW racing, I’m the only one. I’ve been in a male dominated world of law and the only woman in the room for a long time. I am used to that.”
