Lisa worked with the QVC network for around 20 years before calling things off in 2014. Her departure from the channel took many fans by surprise but Lisa revealed that she was in search of a new challenge.

“I think one of the things I needed to learn was who I was without that job because for 20 years, that’s all I thought about all the time. I just thought, well, if I’m looking at it, going, I love it but, how long can I do it…then it’s time to go hmmm, alright well I’ve done it and I loved it and it was great and now there’s really nothing left to do here that I haven’t done, so it’s time to go try something else,”
