My name is Lisa Daniels. I’m from the beautiful Appalachian mountains of Eastern Kentucky but am currently “hanging my hat in Tennessee.” I live in Bristol, TN with my wonderful husband Brian, our precious baby girl Lillian, and our two obnoxious basset hounds Sophie and Copper. As for what sent my family south, that would be my husband’s career. He is a physician specializing in family medicine and is completing residency here. As such, I spend my time playing the role of his wife and support system along with raising and loving our sweet little daughter. I’m a stay at home mommy and am so thankful for that blessing. My hobbies and interests include all things Appalachian, researching my ancestry, making homemade baby food, fishing, traveling, education (I’m a non working teacher), music, movies, pregnancy and childbirth, and researching ways to help Lilly grow and develop. I aspire to one day write and publish children’s books. To sum myself up, I’m a lover and a nourisher. I believe that I was put on this Earth to love my family and take care of them and doing just that gives me more joy than anything else possibly could.

  1. Lisa…I enjoyed reading your bio. You have a gift for writing, and I look forward to purchasing your first children’s book. 🙂 I think it is great that you are able to stay at home with Lillian. I can think of nothing more rewarding then to be a mother and to be able to watch your child grow and develop. I never was blessed with that opportunity, but God did bless me with many neices and nephews, and now great neices and nephews. 🙂 I must say…Lillian sure is a beautiful baby, and she has a smile that melts your heart. I look forward to reading more.

  2. Hi, Lisa
    I appreciate all you shared about the ‘glamorous’ life of a doctor’s wife. I, too, stayed home to raise my two daughters after working as an assistant professor and pharmacist. Best decision I ever made. They are now two very accomplished young adults making their way in the world. About the same age as you! After deciding to stay home, I moved into my ‘second’ act, volunteer extraordinaire. I currently serve as president-elect for the American Medical Association Alliance, an organization primarily composed of physician spouses dedicated to supporting the family of medicine ( Our president, Jo Terry, is also a Kentucky gal by birth and now resides not far from you in Knoxville, TN. You articulated so well the experience of young physician spouses. We would like permission to reference your article on our two Facebook pages. Also I would love to pick your brain more about how we can reach and support young spouses. Please email me at
