Lisa Turley, Lake Norman
My husband and I relocted to Charlotte area 18 years ago from New Jersey because of my husband’s job. We have 4 children – 2 (son and daughter) currently at NC State and 2 (son and daughter) at Charlotte Catholic High School. I graduated from Rider College with a degree in Journalism and worked as the Communications Director for Delaware Valley United Way for 5 years. After having my first child, I decided to be a stay at home mom for about 14 years before returning to the work force in 2006 when I began my real estate career. One of my favorite things to do is to play tennis, which I try to do at least once a week! Another activity that I truly enjoy is watching and cheering on my kids as they play sports; thought that is becoming less and less since 2 kids have already graduated!I am a huge New York Giants fan and definitely believe that my superstitious acts help them win!
