Lisa Miller

COO & Mom


isa is the heart behind Koi Zen Cellars.  Her passion is to create an exceptional experience for

everyone that comes into the tasting room.  She takes care of everyone ie her nickname “Mom”.

Lisa is one of 7 children and grew up in Pennsylvania. Her father died when she was only 13, and she saw her mom struggle those first years. Lisa knew she’d always be able to take care of herself. Thus her entrepreneur spirit was born. She has a degree in Foods and Nutrition/Education. She was the Home Ec Teacher when she met Darius the Shop Teacher. She has always been the creative one, running the test kitchens for Aramark, Developing recipes for Campbells Soup, capturing the essence of people in photography (Photography by Lisa K)  and now as the creative side of Koi Zen.

Her pride and joy are her twin daughters Kiersten (the engineer) and Miranda (the nurse).  In her spare time, she loves, going on a date with her husband and exploring a new thing, watching movies, walking on the beach, cooking,  taking craft classes and camping in the outdoors, because it the one place she can really unwind.
