In 2014, Lyons followed her passion for learning and inspiring others and decided to become an educator.  She was quickly able to build authentic compassionate relationships with her students which created a positive classroom environment.  She created a classroom brand called “The Lyons Den” which inspires students to feel connected with a sense of pride in the school community. 

After seeing untapped potential in many students, Lyons started a Theater Club where she is teaching students to write, produce and act in their own plays.  In addition to her work in the classroom, she desires to support adolescents in navigating through social and emotional barriers to more fully engage academically.

She is the founder of the TRIBE Authentic Woman Workshop where she inspires and motivates women to find, use, and elevate their authentic voice. She currently resides in Chandler, Arizona.
