Prior to her work for the State of Maryland, Lisa worked as a professional archaeologist and occasional college instructor for ten years, primarily in the Mid Atlantic. Her work for the bicentennial of the War of 1812 has taken her all over the Chesapeake region in search of battlefields, sunken ships, field hospitals, forts, and anything else that might have played an important role in the events leading up to the Battle of Baltimore in 1814.
