"Courage, Tenactiy, Conviction: From Mom To Defender of Freedom"
"The strengh of a woman is not measured by the challenges she has endured but by the impact
she has made as a result of the hardships"
- Lisa E. Benson
Lisa Benson has been on the forefront of uncovering global affairs news stories and exposing the power brokers of corruption and malfeasance for 15 years. She is quick to note that a career in global affairs, and in particular as a broadcast on Salem Media AM Talk Radio, found her; she did not seek it out.
For most of Lisa's adult life she has been an advocate for the human rights of innocent people in harm's way of genocide and to educate on the human suffering due to war and providing development expertise to scientific research centers, high education centers in the Middle East and Africa.
She notes that her greatest ambition was to be a wife and mother until a tragic turn of events both personally and globally rocked her world. In 1999 Lisa was vicoiusly assaulted by her then husband while both her children watched in horror. One year later, the 9-11 attacks changed the lives of nearly 3,000 victims and their families, while catapulting many specialized personnel in security, counter intelligence, international development and Middle Eastern affairs to the forefront of the effort to protect America. Lisa was one of those professionals.
At the same time America was grieving so was she for a family that was being rocked apart by violence; and the nation was in tatters trying to heal from a terrorist assault. Lisa did was very could have had the courage to do: She went on a secret mission to the offices of the leading counter-intelligence expert in DC and offered to do whatever it took to help protect the American Homeland. In order to heal as a victim of domestic violence, it seemed sensible to Lisa to help heal a nation and so she has been doing so now for 15 years. Lisa Benson is a compelling, engaging and knowledgable public speaker that motivates men and women to trust in themselves and find their path to a fullfilling life.
Those lucky enough to have who have heard Lisa speak will attest that she is passionate, genuine and mixes the sobering truth of world affairs with a tad of humor and laughter.
