Lisa’s academic background has served her with many volunteer efforts at local and regional museum organizations.

Lisa Fujita is the Registrar at the Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper, Wyoming. Lisa’s interests include Museology, rock and fossil hunting, and all things epicurean. She is currently intrigued by the gastronomic topic of “culinary travel” defined as the pursuit of unique and memorable culinary experiences of all varieties. It is her interest in culinary travel, paired with her love of cooking that has driven her to step outside the constraints of mainstream conference presentations and engage in a cooking demonstration and noshing format where all conference participants are encouraged to share in a delicious culinary experience as well as an academic one. After all, to quote Virginia Woolf, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
