Lisa R. Conner, writer, personal coach, and real estate consultant moved to Alaska in 1969 from Atlanta, Georgia. Her grandfather visited Alaska in the 1950’s before statehood and it was his dream to relocate the family to the Last Frontier. Lisa has called several Alaskan communities her home, including Delta Junction, Fort Greely, Fairbanks, Juneau, Chugiak, Eagle River, Anchorage, and Big Lake.
Lisa and her husband of twenty years, Dan, purchased lakefront property on Big Lake in 2002 after spending four years in the area. The raw beauty, close-knit community, and tranquil lifestyle inspired Lisa to become a full-time resident of Big Lake. In May 2011, Lisa’s dream became a reality and she and her family left all the “stuff” behind and moved to their cabin on Big Lake.Now she lives, works and home-schools her three young children from a 400-square-foot cabin with no running water and no road access. Lisa is excited to share her life in Big Lake with others. You can follow this unique Alaska Adventure on her blog http://thecouragetobeme.com.
