Lisa Boucher is the author of Raising the Bottom: Making Mindful Choices in a Drinking Culture, a speaker, and an inspirational life coach. After short stints where she trained polo horses, worked as a flight attendant, hairdresser, and bartender, she realized that the time to implement serious change had arrived. She gave up drinking, revamped her life and settled in as a registered nurse where happiness became a way of life.
For the past twenty-seven years, Lisa has worked with hundreds of women to overcome alcoholism, live better lives and become better parents. She was prompted to write Raising the Bottom when after twenty-four years of working in hospitals, she realized that doctors and traditional health care offer few solutions to women with addiction issues. She is now dedicated to helping women from all walks of life find peace and fulfillment in life, not in a bottle.
An author of five books, she holds a BA in English, and is the mother of twin sons. She currently resides in Ohio with her husband.
