I'm Lisa Machac.
I'm a graduate of Texas A&M's Recreation, Parks and Tourism Sciences department, I've spent over 20 years studying and writing about the emotional benefits of leisure and recreation, hospitality, and nature.
It's a subject I like to call "mindful recreation", which refers to interacting with our world joyfully with an intention of non-harming. I love to help those in the hospitality, travel, and events industries connect authentically with their customers.
I'm also the creator of Genuine, an online support group. Genuine connects readers to resources that boost confidence, connection, and the desire to serve others.
