Lisa Marie began her career in the U.S. Air Force, where she specialized in helping service personnel succeed in their career paths. She retired from the military after 21 years and, armed with an MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management, she began helping civilian business men and women structure their careers in a purposeful, strategic way to achieve their goals.  

“I started Lisa Marie Graves Legacy Coaching when I realized small business owners didn’t have access to the type of meaningful quality training available to large corporations. I am dedicated to providing those opportunities to everyone, regardless of the size of their business.”

As a decorated veteran with a stellar record in the civilian business world, Lisa Marie often is the “you can do it” example of success after the uniform. She participates in programs to help veterans find employment when they leave the military.


In 2003, she was named Outstanding Personnel Manager of the Year, competing against thousands of others in uniform. She served in the Gulf War, the War on Terror and the Iraq War. She deployed to the Republic of Panama to aid Cuban refugees, to Air Expeditionary Forces II in Shaheed Mwaffaq Air Base in Jordan; the Republic of Macedonia to help maintain peace between the National Liberation Army and the Macedonia Army after the Kosovo War and Joint Balad Air Base in Iraq.
