Lisa Breckenridge was born May 27, 1965. Originally from Lodi, California, she went to Lodi Academy, graduating in the class of 1983. She graduated from Pacific Union College in the Napa Valley in 1987 and Stanford University's Mass Media Institute of Broadcast Journalism.

She worked at KYMA-DT in Yuma, Arizona, then at KOLO-TV in Reno, Nevada and at KCRA in Sacramento, California, before settling at KTTV as a reporter, fill-in anchor, and lifestyle correspondent for Good Day L.A., a job she held for 17 and a half years from 1999 to 2017.
