Yes! Attending Reunion

Currently residing in Baltimore, MD, Lisa received her undergraduate degrees in Clinical Psychology at SUNY Oswego and Physics/Astronomy at Arizona State University. She earned an M.A. in Astronomy from Wesleyan University in 1996.

She has been at Space Telescope Science Institute (research institute for the Hubble Space Telescope) in Baltimore, MD since finishing school in '96, first as a science data analyst, then as an image processor for the Hubble Heritage Team [] and the Office of Public Outreach News Team []. She has also been the chair of the science-based summer student program at STScI for undergraduates students since 2012.

She has been with the Hubble telescope for nearly 20 years, producing fantastic images for scientific discovery and public outreach. Her imaging work from Hubble has been published in myriad books, magazines, and were used in the 2010 IMAX 3D movie "Hubble 3D" (yes my name is in the credits!).

Lisa loves telescope observing, spending time with the kids, (two teenagers and a 7 year old), pool volleyball, logic puzzles/math games, and has successfully run a $40K school fundraisers where volunteers turn the school into a casino-based night club!

Lisa met Jim the first weekend of college at SUNY Oswego in August 1985. This year will also be their 30th dating anniversary. Jim followed Lisa from Oswego to AZ, to CT, and to MD for her schooling and work. They were married in 1994 in Rochester, have three children, and currently live in Baltimore.
