Lisa L. Lewis
Lisa L. Lewis MS, is a freelance journalist who covers the intersection of parenting, public health, and education. Her book, The Sleep-Deprived Teen: Why Our Teenagers Are So Tired, and How Parents and Schools Can Help Them Thrive is an outgrowth of her previous work on the topic, including her role helping get California’s landmark legislation on healthy school start times passed. Lewis has written for The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Atlantic, TIME, the Los Angeles Times, Slate, and Your Teen, among others. She’s a parent to a teen and a recent teen who inspires much of what she writes about—everything from concussions and heat stroke to school lockdowns to teenage sleep. She has a master’s degree from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, an MFA from Mills College, and a bachelor’s degree from UC Berkeley. Lewis lives in California with her family.
