Lisa Whann has a keen eye for unique and tasteful residential design, not only from an architectural standpoint, but also in the selection of cohesive furnishings. This is evidenced by the numerous homes she and her husband have designed, built, and furnished, many of which have been featured in publications.
Previously, Lisa received her Bachelor of Business Administration degree and Sociology degree from University of Texas at Dallas in 2001. She put her business degree to work shortly after graduating to start The Threaded Needle out of her home.
In January of 2002, she became a full-time home manager after delivering her first child, Olivia. Campbell soon followed in 2003, Connor in 2005, and Georgia in 2007. She quickly became an advocate for children with Apraxia and a resource to parents after one of her children was diagnosed with the disability a few years after birth. She quickly realized that the traditional educational environment, public and private, was not conducive for remediation of the disability. Recognizing this gap in the educational system, she and her husband, Tyler, were led to start Heritage School of Texas, the first Classically influenced Christian School for kids with learning disabilities in the DFW metroplex, in 2011.
She has also been actively involved in various ministries at Watermark Community Church since its inception in 1999, along with a number of other Christian ministries in Dallas.
