Lisa Quan - An artist at heart, she has always had her hand in one creative endeavor or another. She thrives in the writing aspect of storytelling with the help of her beloved husband, to see joint ideas form up into stories that she would have otherwise just had a good conversation about or found a way to depict in painting or clay work. She greatly admires the hard work that Jared puts forth to make these stories possible. Together they have five children.
