My passion for fashion and love of acting started at a young age. I would have my father alter my clothes the way I wanted them to be, and my cousin and I would play dress up and perform for our families. After college, corporate work and raising two incredibly gifted children, I finally took a leap into the entertainment world. With the help of fellow acting and modeling professionals, my career launched and included, print, commercial, film, tv, billboards and QVC live. A breast cancer diagnosis in September 2019 put my career on hold. After many surgeries, chemo and physical therapy, I reentered the newly defined Covid entertainment world. With persistence, I set up a home studio and learned to self-tape auditions. I also set up a home recording booth, learned to edit with audacity and added Voiceover Actor to my resume. I am back in full swing with agents in multiple states and audition on a daily basis. Please visit my professional website www.lisaminakowski.com and reach out with comments or suggestions. With a second chance at life, I am a true advocate for learning, improving myself and sharing with others.
