Now a Financial Advisor, Lisa Casillo was raised in Mokena, Illinois by her grandmother and great grandmother. Her great grandmother came to America from Italy when she was just five years old, and both grandmothers taught her their Italian family traditions. To be with her mother, Lisa travelled to Florida every year for summers and holidays.
Before her success as a Financial Advisor, Lisa married young and became a mother before her 18th birthday. After her first child was born, she moved from Illinois to Florida to be closer to her mother. Lisa divorced young, leaving her to raise her two young children alone. During this time, she attended college and worked as a full-time waitress. It was at the University of Central Florida where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Communicative Disorders. In 2009, she moved to Massachusetts, changed careers, and fell in love with helping others secure their financial futures.
When not working, Lisa can be found traveling to spend time with her kids, Alex and Gabrielle; grandkids, Finley and Winston. Her faithful pets include her Old English Sheep Dog, Kai, and her orange cat, Fizgig. Even more, she loves spending time with her spouse Paul while doing things such as traveling, hiking, and kayaking during her favorite time of the year, Spring. Lastly, her guilty pleasure is her love for always having the perfect unusual shoe for each fashionable day.
Lisa is also a Radio Host of Connecting Worcester Style in Worcester, Massachusetts. Moreover, she is the Founder of Women Connecting Worcester Style networking group where the focus is women helping women achieve their career aspirations through support and sharing successes.
