In 2012, she moved back to Michigan with dreams of opening a bakery with a big-hearted mission: make delicious food and treat her community (employees, neighbors, partners) well. Lisa launched Sister Pie out of her parent’s Milford kitchen and began to build the business piece-by-piece, with the help of many supporters and a whole lot of dancing. She and a small crew of passionate women opened the doors to the Detroit pie shop in April 2015, and they’ve been hustling ever since.
The Sister Pie cookbook was published in 2018 and has sold over 70,000 copies. Lisa currently resides in the West Village of Detroit with her five-year-old pitbull, Ruby.
