Lisa Laird, her husband Alan and their two sons, Matthew and Daniel, have been using puppets to teach and entertain at their local church and in other churches since the year 2000. Lisa branched out into ventriloquism in 2005 to use the benefits of puppetry in her preschool classroom. She started her training with the Maher Ventriloquism course.
Lisa continued to learn how to improve her skills through the Ventriloquist in Training program offered through Creative Ministry Solutions. She has graduated from all three levels of training - the final level being Professional Elite. As part of her training she was required to compete and has earned four Gold awards. Lisa was chosen to be on the One Way Street Ventriloquist Dream Team and performed with a team of five ventriloquists at I-Fest the summer of 2008.
Lisa has also received private training from Stephen Knowles and Ken Groves in February 2009. In September of 2010 Lisa had private training with Mark Wade who is America's #1 children's ventriloquist. Lisa also won First Place in the Axtell Video Contest in 2013. Since "retiring" from teaching in 2008 Lisa has been traveling full-time as a children's entertainer with her cast of characters of Pockets Full of Fun, providing programs which entertain, encourage and educate.
