In 1986, Lisa Marie Stevens left a 6-year position with United Parcel Service, to pursue a career in Cosmetology at Professional’s Choice Hair Design Academy in Joliet. Some would say it was destiny; Lisa’s parents met in 1949 at the Vogue Academy of Beauty Culture at Ottawa and Van Buren Streets in Joliet.
Lisa has been employed with Baron’s Designs since 1987. Feeling the need to expand her knowledge and job skills, she enrolled in and completed (in 1994) a 700-hour certified program in Massage Therapy at Wellness and Massage Training Institute, in Willowbrook. And, is now a licensed massage therapist.
Lisa’s creative outlets are photography, web development and design and is the author of www.baronsdesigns.com and her personal photography web site www.lmstevensphoto.com. Recently she has rekindled a love for film cameras and has been dabling in some alternative process. Lisa spends her free time with family and friends and also enjoys gardening, outdoor sports and long walks and travel with her partner. Lisa resides in Lockport, IL.
