Lisa Nolen shares anecdotes from her life and how she manages anxiety. Nolen moved to Sioux Falls 10 years ago as a stepping stone on a journey. She unexpectedly found the love of her life here, by way of a meddling sister and a shared love of ice cream and WWE wrestling. Together, Chad and Lisa love taking walks with their two young children, laughing uncontrollably at their own jokes, and serving others through their business development company, Serve Collective.
Growing up, her mom often said Lisa marched to the beat of a different drum. After years of growing up trying to fit in, she’s loving this part of the journey finding her own beat.
