Early life and education
Lisa was raised in Chicago as an only child, by her Chilean mother Lucy Guerrero and her American father Walter Cols; her mother died from lymphoma cancer when she was eight, and her father then paid for her theatre therapy, which was how Lisa became interested in acting.
She was into many other activities while attending Edison High School in Huntington Beach, California, and appeared in various plays performed at the school, while Lisa also practiced creative writing and enjoyed playing sports.
She matriculated in 1982, and then chose not to pursue a college degree, but to focus on her career.
Career as a journalist
Lisa launched her career as a model straight out of high school, and the first half of the ‘80s also saw her become a cheerleader for the professional American Football team Los Angeles Rams. After a couple of years with them, she worked for the football teams New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons as their entertainment director.
