La Tisa Bright grew up in the Evanston, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. Shortly after graduating high school, La Tisa decided to relocate to Knoxville, TN. She began work at the University of Tennessee in 2001 on the Ag Campus. After a few years, she moved to to the School of Art where she served as the graduate secretary. Working so closely with students gave La Tisa a passion for working with people. Soon after First-Year Studies opened its doors in 2011, La Tisa moved on over so she would work with as many students as possible. La Tisa currently runs the FYS House, manages the student assistants, oversees the FYS budget, manages all FYS staff and Student Success Administration staff calendars and external communications.
La Tisa is currently working on a degree in psychology with a minor in child and family studies. She is a proud mother of four beautiful children. La Tisa plans to graduate in May 2015 with her bachelors degree and hopes to continue working to help others.
