Lisa Dunn is the co-executive producer and owner of The Glass City Grind. After years of being a stay at home Mom to her 3 children, she decided to get back out in the workforce by starting a Motherhood blog and website. The Truth Behind Suburban Motherhood, kick started a small guest host spot on local radio and television. At that point she knew she had found her passion and career path. From there the idea for Glass City Grind was born. Being able to promote her community in a positive way, through her blog and television series, is an important part of who she is. She now resides in Genoa and enjoys being active in her community, serving as PTO President, head of the Genoa Economic Development Team, newly active in the Garden Club and attending Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church. She also volunteers for other community organizations in the greater Toledo area ;like the Walk to Defeat ALS, . Besides being a suburban socialite and community activist, she enjoys spending time with her husband, traveling and reading! Lisa is optimistic, fun, thrifty and always ready for a new challenge.

If you were born in the 80’s you probably remember watching Back to the Future or The Jetson’s.  Hoverboards, flying cars and robot maids were the future. It was hard to imagine that type of technology being tangible. At the time there was still a rotary phone in your kitchen.  Having a Nintendo with two games, Duck Hunt and Super Mario Brothers, made you lucky!
Today kids wake up on Christmas morning to the gifts that once seemed impossible, cell phones that awaken to your thumb print and tablets that are controlled by touch. If Mom is a good girl, Santa may bring her a robot that sweeps the floors.  In the last 30 years technology has gone from almost nonexistent in the average home, to an indispensable way to get through the day.  Gone are the days of rotary phones or even cordless at that.  Most American families have two or more cell phones in the house.  The television has gone from big and bulky to paper thin.  Computers are now lightweight, portable and floppy disks are ancient relics.
Then there is the internet.  Remember when everyone was still referring to it as, “The World Wide Web”? Even in the 90’s when technology started to get better, logging online to check your AIM instant messenger was still rough. Dad would pick up the phone to make a call, only to boot you off seconds after the running man made connection!  The struggle was real my friend.  Millennials today will never understand this. In the year 2016, technology is not just part of everyday life, but most of us can’t live without it.
