Lisa Montgomery’s small business success came about shortly after she made drastic changes to her diet. Living with food allergies and candida led Lisa to search for answers. While working as a packaging sales representative, she became certified as a holistic health care practitioner and an associate raw chef/instructor. Lisa is now the owner of Living Dynamically LLC and hosts monthly ‘Raw Potlucks’ and workshops, speaks and presents at wellness expos, and is the author of four books promoting healthy living. Lisa says her SCORE mentor, Dick Powell, supported and guided her every step of the way.
Lisa Montgomery started her journey to living a raw food lifestyle over 15 years ago and is now referred to as the ‘guru to the gurus of raw food’. This summer Ms. Montgomery released two new books to accompany her already released bestseller, Raw Inspiration. “What you put in your mouth and how you live your life are so important,” says Lisa. “A raw food diet cleanses the body and nurtures the soul.”
Lisa’s book Raw Inspiration: Living Dynamically with Raw Food is an inspiring and informative raw foods lifestyle book featuring personal stories of healing through raw foods. Raw Inspiration explains the basics of nutrition and meal planning with raw foods, as well as provides a guide to equipping a raw foods kitchen.

“My SCORE Mentor, Dick Powell, helped me advertise and promote my first wellness expo featuring supermodel, author, and actress Carol Alt,” says Lisa. “People were blown away by the amount of publicity we got for this event whether it was print, radio, or television. I could not have had the coverage we had if it were not for Dick Powell and SCORE. In fact, Carol Alt, who has traveled the world was blown away by the publicity we received in little Royersford, PA.”
Lisa has this to say about her SCORE Mentor: “Dick Powell supported me, guided me, and held my hand as I put together my first wellness expo with Carol Alt. It was unchartered territory for me but he was there for me every step of the way along with his lovely wife, Lucille. You can never have enough people supporting you along your journey. I was blessed to have Dick and Lucille.”
