She received a full athletic scholarship to Northern Illinois University, where she competed on the university's gymnastics team while completing a degree in graphic arts. Lisanna's strong technique and talent has led her to perform numerous disciplines in addition to her solo rope act, including Chinese Pole, Aerial Silks, Cerceaux, Pole Dance, Cloud Swing, Bungee, Tumbling, Harness Work, Dance, Character Work, and Stunt Acrobatics.
She has delighted audiences with her energetic performances in shows with famed singer MeatLoaf, with Sea World San Diego, Cirque Italia, the Grand Sierra Resort, the San Diego Symphony Orchestra, Q Productions, and various galas throughout the States for Arbonne, UCLA Pauley Pavilion, and International All Star Games.
Joining the creation of Cirque du Soleil's LIGHT in Las Vegas, Lisanna and fellow castmates worked closely with veteran Cirque du Soleil artist and flourishing Artistic Director Hassan El-Hajjami "Haspop." Pushing the boundaries of nightlife Cirque entertainment, Hassan and his team created new shows every season, with groundbreaking 3D Mapping & Interactive video technology by Moment Factory. Lisanna and fellow Cirque du Soleil artists performed with world famous DJ's such as Alesso, Nicky Romero, Disclosure & Skrillex, former members of Swedish House Mafia: Axwell & Ingrosso, while providing event entertainment for Iheart Radio, Beats by DRE, Dreamworks, and Baauer Studio B.
