Lisa Puzon

Atlanta, GA
Puzon is passionate about the arts, education and diversity. An Asian immigrant in the 70’s, she was inspired by the African and African American artists who fought to express their culture despite lack of acceptance and persevered to celebrate their authentic selves. She taught art in public high school and was selected for Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers in 2002, a national award based on a recommendation from a successful former student for having made a positive impact in her life. She has taken part in many projects and workshops using visual arts as a means to empower and educate low wealth communities and celebrate the creative and scientific contributions of people of color. She now holds a doctorate degree in Transpersonal Psychology and integrates art and psychology to counsel, educate, and empower children, adults, couples and families of diverse cultural, social and religious backgrounds. Her strong belief in empowerment and equity led her to work with VISIONS where she has been a consultant since 2006.
