– Tarah Consoli – Actor, Voice Artist

Never in a million years did Lisa (she/her) think she would be writing a bio for her acting career, but… here we are. Born into a large family Hamilton, Ontario, Lisa’s sense of adventure led her to live, work, pursue her education and raise a family in cities across Canada and beyond.

Lisa has been a key player in the Canadian cultural sector since starting her career in her early 20s. Holding positions in museums and galleries locally, nationally, and internationally, and working as adjunct faculty in the Master of Museum Studies program at the University of Toronto, has given her the opportunity to not only put her own artistic vision to work but to partner with a wide variety of artists, musicians, filmmakers, authors and actors. Little did she know that her career-long immersion in this world of storytelling and performance would foreshadow the transition her career would take.

Lisa holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from NSCAD University, Halifax, a Master of Museum Studies from the University of Toronto and has studied in the Department of History, McMaster University, Hamilton. She is a founding member of the Della Sera Strings, a Hamilton-based community orchestra. Lisa is a writer and photographer, has been a regular speaker and lecturer and continues to maintain an independent curatorial practice. She has taught in the Freedom Forgers program, where she assisted students with autism to develop skills in voice acting, on-camera work, podcasting and project management. She is a passionate mentor for young and emerging museum professionals and is a lifelong teacher and learner.

A recent opportunity to voice a donor recognition video for the Hamilton Conservation Authority Foundation earned her the nickname, The Voice of Mother Nature.
