Meet Lisa Hutchens
From the age of 3 years I grew up in Venezuela, Algeria, Libya, Norway, Australia and Peru. My father's career in the petroleum industry assured me of a very broad and diverse education, in and out of the classroom. I was educated in the French, Norwegian, Australian and American school systems. I retain moderate fluency in French and minimal fluency in Norwegian and Spanish.
My nursing career began in Fort Worth, Texas, where I graduated from Texas Christian University in 1977 with a Bachelor or Science in Nursing.
Following 25 years as a surgical nurse and nurse educator in Fort Worth and Arlington, Texas, I relocated to Santa Barbara, California in 2002. While continuing my surgical and educational career path, I subsequently earned a Master of Science in Nursing Education from Western Governors University, and certification in Legal Nurse Consulting from the Vickie Milazzo Institute.
