Lisa (Heyden) Royal (Rush Spring 1992) is loving life in a suburb of Chicago. I have a house in Mount Prospect with my high school sweetheart Jason our cat, Romeo, and lab/shepherd mix, Hunter. Children next year??? I am the Manager of Quality Engineering for Shure Incorporated at there manufacturing site in Wheeling. Shure designs and manufactures products for the music industry. This includes fun products such as: microphones, mixers, and we still make phono cartridges. Not that Shure doesn't pay well but, I am also a PartyLite independent consultant as I love candles. Maybe it was all those candles we would burn at initiations. In my spare time I love to cross country ski, roller blade and bike with few fellow AOE sisters. I am also insane enough to enjoy racing sailboats on Lake Michigan, and yes, I even have a few races to Makinac under my belt. Nothing beats three days on the water with eight others and a bucket to shower with. I hope you enjoyed reading about me, as I look forward to reading about
everyone else! In love, sisterhood and friendship...Lisa.
