Lisa Napoli

When Lisa Napoli found herself unhappy with her work in the fast-paced U.S. media world, she volunteered to help start Bhutan's first youth-oriented radio station. Bhutan is a small kingdom in the Himalayas, surrounded by giants India and China; it's home to just 650,000 residents, most of whom make their living as subsistence farmers. The nation has experienced rapid change in the past forty years, becoming a democracy in 2008 after a century of monarchy. In her time in Bhutan, Napoli learned more about the people, history and culture of the "last Buddhist kingdom" and the so-called "happiest kingdom on Earth," and she also learned quite a bit about herself: How to be grateful for what she has, instead of regretful for what she doesn't. How helping others is far more important than focusing on one's own narrow universe. Earlier in her career, Lisa was the Internet correspondent for MSNBC, a columnist for MSNBC.com, and the first staff reporter/columnist at the NY Times Cybertimes, now defunct. She's also worked at a division of the home shopping channel QVC, in craft services for the horror film Hellraiser 3, and in public relations for Summit House, an alternative to prison for women and their kids in Greensboro, North Carolina. She began her career at CNN in 1984. A native of Brooklyn, New York, Lisa is a graduate of Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass. She currently lives in Los Angeles.
