Lisa Masterson's Bio & Education
Lisa Masterson was born on 19 March 1966 in Louisiana, USA as Lisa Marie Milner. At the age of 52, she stands at the height of 5 feet 3 inches (1.6meters). She was raised alongside her brother by her mother Lavonne, who is a professor at the University of Washington. The family moved to San Diego, and there, Lisa's mother worked at the Employment Opportunity Commission. During her internship period, her mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Sadly, her mother passed away after a year.
The fact that Lisa couldn't do anything during her battle with cancer still haunts her. However, her mother left her a remarkable legacy and inspiration to be healthy and independent.
As per her bio, she received her education at The Bishop’s School, a well-respected private school in La Jolla, San Diego. Lisa soon graduated from Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts with a degree in Biochemistry. She started her intern as an Obstetrics and Gynecology at USC/County Hospital.
Married, husband & Children
Lisa was married to her husband, Stephen Vincent Masterson in 1990. The two tied the wedding knot during her first year of medical school. They lived together for years that seemed like a blissful relationship.
Lisa and her husband welcomed their son, Daniel Masterson in 1992. Daniel is a proud graduate, martial artist, actor, senior member, and stunt performer.

However, her serene married life came to an end and the two divorced. But even after the divorce, Lisa remained on good terms with her ex-husband. They raised their son together.
Since the divorce, the doctor is currently single and isn’t eager to marry again. Lisa is more focused on her son, and she is definitely not looking forward to adding more children to her family.
