Lisa Cunningham's life underwent a profound shift following her father's passing in 2006. Despite her success in the entertainment industry directing and producing hundreds of music videos, she felt spiritually, mentally, and physically drained. Recognizing the need for transformation, Lisa embarked on a soul-searching journey and discovered her purpose—to evoke "aha" moments through impactful digital content.
Now, as a digital content & creative director, Lisa dedicates herself to advocacy work within health and DEI initiatives. Beyond her professional endeavors, she passionately inspires individuals as a motivational speaker, encouraging them to craft their best lives while emphasizing the profound importance of well-being and personal growth.
Lisa Cunningham is passionate about diversity and inclusion and shares on this topic during a TEDx Talk in Atlanta.
