Lisa is an American as per her nationality and belongs to the Caucasian ethnicity.

She Studied Law at College

Lisa attended law school at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. She was an aspiring attorney in the early 1980s. While Meyers has remained tight-lipped regarding her career as an attorney to herself, the Pepperdine University alumn attended Johnny’s bar admissions ceremony back in 2015.

Lisa Meyers and Kris Kristofferson First Meeting

The future duo first came across at a gymnasium back in 1982. Kris, the ‘Me and Bobby McGee’ songwriter who already went through two failed marriages wasn’t too ready to jump into a new relationship with Lisa. The artist recalled to the Independent,

“I was a bachelor father at the time and I told her: ‘I take a little girl to school and I pick her up at the end of the day and then we go do whatever she wants to do and I haven’t got room for anything else.’ That’s how it all started for Lisa and me.”

He remembered,

“We met at the gymnasium and we were looking at each other and I borrowed a piece of equipment off her, which was a ploy, I guess, because I saw something there that was promising.”

Despite his initial reluctance to begin a new relationship, Kris eventually began dating Lisa. The two dated for months before they tied the knot.

Lisa and Kris exchanged their vows in 1983, a year after their encounter at the gym. They walked down the aisle in a small private ceremony in the chapel of Pepperdine University. Sources say, only their family members and close friends were present at the ceremony.

“The kids now come with me and Lisa wherever I’m working, and they are a joy all the time. Looking back, I really have to say I’m not sure I would change anything. Because something, especially over at least the last 15 years, has finally made my life perfect. My family, in particular, is the best thing in my life.”

“We understand Kris’s deficits in spatial awareness and short-term memory loss and we laugh about it all the time. We laugh at him and with him and we make the best of it because Lyme is so tragic that if you don’t have something to counterbalance the sadness of that, it’ll take you down.”
