Meet the Women Behind the Farm!
Lisa Kaiser- President
Lisa has been in business management for most of her life. She was very involved with Domestic Violence and Child Abuse issues and had been asked by the Arizona State Senate President to be a part of a Family Violence Task Force Committee. Lisa was also one of the original four founding members of the North Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce back in 2006, when it was just an idea between some friends.
Due to misdiagnosis and death of her father, Lisa decided to further her education in natural healing and attended Global College of Natural Medicine in California. She then went on to enroll in the Holistic Healthcare Practitioner and Transformational Psychology program at Southwestern Institute of Healing Arts where she earned her degree. Lisa's focus is on subtle energies everything emits and using those energies to heal others, including "Distant Healing and Remote Viewing" which she has had a gift for since childhood.
Pinedora Farms was born in late 2016, where the family's focus has been building an Organic Farm, Educational and Wellness Retreat Facility and be an example of Off-grid sustainable living.
