Biography

Lisa L. Smith has been teaching since beginning graduate school in 2008 and can say that she has finally found her calling. Smith loves teaching and the College of Health Solutions is a great fit for her as an instructor and as a researcher. She has been active her entire life and enjoys teaching others about the physical, emotional and psychological benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Not only do students learn the actual knowledge on wellness, but they learn the obstacles to achieving it and how to overcome those challenges and to design their best lives possible.  

Smith's research interests include mindfulness, bariatric surgery, substance abuse, meditation and obesity.
