Self Love Beauty Team

Executive Director and Founder




Lisa Thompson is the Executive Director and Founder of Self Love Beauty. She is an established speaker, confidence and self-love workshop leader and social impact consultant.  

She started SLB in 2012, at a time in her life when she was trying to find her purpose, where she fit in and she was struggling with her own wellbeing & confidence journey. Can you relate? She started this mission based non-profit to share her story of finding self-love & confidence again with the hope of empowering others. She wants everyone to know they are not alone on their journey to find self-love and confidence. For so long, fear, what other people thought and the comparison game kept her from being well the best version of herself, however overtime she has come to love and embrace all her beautiful imperfections.

Join her in growing in your own journey by taking a class, attending an event or working directly with her.

Emily Anderson was born and raised in the Great Lakes Bay Region, and is a graduate of Central Michigan University (Fire up!) with her degree in Interpersonal and Public Communication. Before coming to Self Love Beauty, she’s worked as an Admissions Representative at Delta College and as the Manager of Community Programs at Midland Center for the Arts. She’s a long-time patron of the arts and volunteers onstage and behind the scenes for Six-Eleven Theatre Company, Midland Center for the Arts, and the American Association of Community Theatre. If she looks familiar to you, you may have seen her play the title role in Mary Poppins or Sally Bowles in Cabaret! In her spare time, Emily enjoys traveling, hosting a Broadway-themed radio show on Delta College Public Radio, watching movies, and cheering for the Green Bay Packers. She lives in Midland with her fiance Jason, and their four kids, two cats, and one dog.
