PIGS Animal Sanctuary exists entirely because of the generosity and commitment of our donors.  We do not buy or sell donor lists.  Most of our donors have come to know us by visiting the Sanctuary or learning of our work from television or newspaper accounts.

It is the regular support of this small group of compassionate individuals that has sustained the Sanctuary and its animal residents for more than a decade.

Meet Chef Lisa

Lisa had a circuitous career path that led her to the culinary world. After graduate school, she worked as a Technical Writer for Intel Corporation. However, the ergonomics of sitting at a desk all day, along with a recent battle with cancer led her to do an intensive yoga teacher training in Bikram Yoga and then open two yoga studios in Jacksonville, Florida. Also an avid photographer, Lisa started one of the first full-service virtual tour companies, Circlescapes and has run that along with her business partner since 2008.

An increasing awareness of and interest in how movement and diet impact healing, along with an Italian heritage in savoring every meal, Lisa started studying plant-based culinary techniques in her spare time. She first attended the Rouxbe Online Cooking School in 2014 and then Living Light Culinary Institute, a Gourmet Raw Culinary School based in California where she received her Culinary Chef Degree. She also holds a certificate as a Science of Raw Nutrition Educator from Drs. Rick and Karin Dina. Lisa joined Kailo Nutrition in 2016 where she teaches public and private cooking classes as well as leads community demonstrations designed to show people how easy eating healthy can be.

Chef Lisa adopted a vegetarian lifestyle as a young child out of compassion for animals. However, eating vegetarian didn’t necessarily mean eating healthy. Growing up, Lisa predominantly ate cheese, white flour (breads, bagels and pasta) and the occasional vegetables or legumes.

It wasn’t until a cancer diagnosis in her twenties that she began to look to plant-based foods for healing. Her Aunt Cheryl, a lifelong raw foodist inspired her to grow and drink wheatgrass and incorporate raw foods as a supplement to the Western medicine protocol. Adopting a whole food, plant-based diet, along with a regular yoga practice, has helped her stay cancer-free for over 20 years.

It is Lisa’s firm belief that eating healthy can be easy, satisfying and most importantly, DELICIOUS. It is her passion to teach others how to create meals that are not only packed with nutrients, but also taste good, so that they can make a lifestyle shift to a healthy diet WITHOUT sacrificing flavor.

When she is not in the kitchen, blogging or teaching private or community cooking classes with Kailo Nutrition, Lisa practices and teaches Bikram yoga, travels, does panoramic photography, visits vegan restaurants, and plays soccer with her 14-year old Jack Russell, Max. Lisa lives in St, Augustine, FL.
