Lisa Barall-Matt was born in Hartford, Connecticut as one of four siblings, having a sister and two brothers. After living in Bloomfield through her high school graduation, she went to Ithaca College. Upon finishing school, Lisa took a computer programming job at Aetna. What was going to be two to five year stint at Aetna turned into a career as an information technologies executive with a run of twenty-two years.

Lisa got restless living the corporate life and decided in 2002 to “retire” from Aetna. She then entered the real estate profession and continues to practice today. Lisa has been with Re/MAX since becoming a realtor and has been its number one agent in Connecticut for six of the last eight years.

Along the way, Lisa was blessed with “two amazing daughters” - Leah, who is a Doctor of Pharmacy and practices in California where she lives with her husband Tom and their two dogs, and Dena, who is a Harvard Law graduate and practicing attorney specializing in Private Equity with Kirkland and Ellis in the Boston area, where she lives with her husband Matt and a golden retriever named Newman.

In 2006 Lisa decided to take a chance on a second marriage and married the “love of her life and best friend” Todd. Together she and Todd raised two more “amazing kids” - Tyler, who is a Clemson graduate with a degree in Biomedical Engineering currently serving as a Naval Officer out of Virginia, and Morgan, who is a Virginia Tech graduate working as an Industrial Designer at Proctor and Gamble in Boston.

One of Lisa’s passions is children. She has been actively involved with fundraising for the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, which her uncle Simon Konover built at Paul Newman’s request. She is now heavily engaged for the second year with the planning committee for the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center annual gala.

This fall Lisa and her husband will be spending two weeks in Germany and Denmark. Lisa’s father, Stanley Barall and her grandfather, David Konover were the two founding members of the Bloomfield Rotary.
