Lisa Hughes Family
Her father was a professor at the University of Washington where Hughes schooled at. We have no details regarding her mother. However, she grew up alongside a brother and sister.
Lisa Hughes Husband
Hughes married Mike Casey, a photographer, in 2005. When they married, Casey was a widowed father raising his daughter, Riley.
Casey had been married to Neilie Casey before. When their daughter Riley was only six months old, on September 11, 2001, Neilie was on board of the American Airlines Flight 11, which crashed into the World Trade Center.
Casey raised his daughter as a single dad after losing his wife in 9/11, getting help from Neilie’s friends in a moms forum and other moms in the playgroup of Riley. He moved from advertising to photography professions and devoted himself to his daughter. Hughes has embraced Riley as her daughter since she married Casey.
Incidentally, Hughes had flown over the World Trade Towers on the morning of September 11, 2001, while flying from Boston to New York. When the attacks happened, Hughes was on ground zero for five days covering the breaking story.
As Riley grew older, both Casey and Hughes educated her on the history of 9/11 and how her mother was killed in that attack.
Riley inherited her biological mother’s golfing prowess and she and Hughes share common athletic passions. The family are avid cyclists and runners.

Lisa Hughes Interview
The VIP Lounge with Lisa Hughes
Favorite vacation destination? I’m a Gemini. So I’ll pick two. For the total experience — people, history, food, animals — South Africa. My husband and I spent almost two weeks there on our honeymoon. Unforgettable. [Then the] Pacific Northwest. It’s where I grew up. My parents still live there. My kids love the carefree pace and activities. And my hometown [Moscow, Idaho] finally has good bike trails, restaurants, and breweries.
Favorite food or drink while vacationing? I totally subscribe to the “When in Rome . . . ” philosophy. I want to eat and drink what’s local — especially if it’s something I’ve never had before. The thrill of discovery is part of what makes traveling so much fun.
Where would you like to travel to but haven’t? Everywhere! I love traveling so much that there are few places I wouldn’t want to go, but at the top of my list right now? Southern Italy, the Galapagos Islands, Acadia National Park, and Portugal. We have two Portuguese water dogs. Maybe they’d stop eating my mail — and checkbook — if I learned a few words in their native language.
One item you can’t leave home without when traveling? My Kindle. I love to read and never have enough time. I recently sat on the tarmac at Logan for almost three hours in a snowstorm and didn’t mind a bit. The delay gave me enough time to finish Ann Patchett’s “Commonwealth.” To have time to read feels like a luxury. To have time to read and a vacation? That’s a gift!
Aisle or window? Aisle. I drink a lot of water and hate stepping over people midflight.
Favorite childhood travel memory? Camping in the Tetons. We were supposed to be in a tent, but before the trip, my brother and a friend had been playing with the poles — either as swords or spears — and forgot to put them back in the bag. It wasn’t until my dad was laying out all the parts of the tent in Wyoming that he discovered several poles were missing. He was furious and my brother was very, very quiet. But family tension aside, it meant that, on a beautiful summer night, we slept in our puffy sleeping bags under the stars. The magic was short-lived. It rained the next day and we had to move to a crummy motel. But hey, it’s still a great memory.
Guilty pleasure when traveling? Local beer — or wine — and ice cream.
Best travel tip? Streamline the process. Spend the money for Global Entry. It will usually spare you the longest security lines. Use packing cubes to organize what’s in your bag. Try — without pushing the boundaries of what’s reasonable — not to check luggage. And if you’re visiting friends or family, get a flat-rate box and mail your clothes in advance. It’s hard to be that organized, but it frees you up to focus on snacks, toys, devices, stuffed animals, and stickers your kids will use to create a nest at every stop along the way.
