About the Author
Lisa grew up in Arizona, riding horses and learning about life in a family steeped in commitment to service. Lisa's family has been involved in political and community leadership locally and nationally for generations. She was educated at Stanford University and Arizona State University, worked as a speech pathologist specializing in brain injury at the VA hospital, then ran for and was elected to the Arizona legislature and subsequently as Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction. Lisa has become a national authority on what is right and what is wrong with education in America, and has advised policy leaders at all levels.
In the course of her work, Lisa served on both of John McCain's presidential campaigns, leading his education policy team. She also worked on the George W. Bush transition team in 2000, and was interviewed by President-elect Bush to be his Secretary of Education before the president chose Roderick Paige to take the job - a choice Lisa heartily approved of.
She shares ownership in the Keegan Company with her husband John, a former military officer, civil engineer, legislator, mayor and judge. Lisa's work includes analyzing education policy, giving advice, writing and speaking; and her favorite work obsession is National School Choice Week. Lisa and John are also grateful members of the Episcopal diocese in Phoenix.
Her family life has been blessed with a close knit clan of children, stepchildren, children-in-law, grandchildren, former spouses, cousins, aunts, uncles and dear friends who come together to support each other as a family. The Keegans have five beautiful children, two children-in-law, two grandsons so far...and they are deeply proud of the contributions all of their children make to their own communities.

It's rare to find such a direct and heartfelt book by someone who has lived in the public eye. Keegan's positive outlook on life and her graceful approach shine through. And there's a ton of great advice throughout!
This is a very raw look back at one amazing women's work in creating opportunities for her children, letting them be who they are, and translating that focus to all children. Thank you Lisa - I truly loved this!
The forward to the book is written by Kate Keegan McClendon and Annie Graham, Keegan's step daughter and daughter respectively. They articulate the sense of family and service that Keegan imbued in her extended family.
This is a wonderful personal interest story and great parenting book, filled with common sense solutions to the challenges of forging a family.
