Early life and education

Lisa Bruce Today at Ohio

Lisa Bruce was born in Monterey, California to Mary Ann and George W. Bruce. She was one of five children. When she was in middle school, her family moved from Monterey to Coronado, California, because of her father's job with the United States Navy as a commanding officer of the USS Ticonderoga and USS St. Louis. As a teenager, Bruce worked at a local movie theater where her brother paid her a dollar per hour to mop the floor; she jokes that it was her "first job in the movie business".
