Lisa Lagace
Lisa Lagace is a Toronto-based freelance writer covering the entertainment and lifestyle beats. Her words have been featured in NPR, USA Today, Marie Claire, The New York Post, Paste Magazine and more. When she’s not busy writing about the intersection of entertainment and finance, she can be found with friends seeing live music (when there’s not a pandemic raging), hanging out with all the dogs in the dog park, or binging her latest TV obsession—which is probably true crime related. She highly suggests watching the latest season of Succession for a unique look at the way trauma is passed down generationally. She taught herself everything she knows about finance after graduating with significant student loans and realizing her expensive education taught her nothing about the intricacies of money. Today, she uses that knowledge to help others who find themselves in similar situations.
