Lisa Brewer-Engle (née Packett) is Karen Brewer and Andrew Brewer's mother and Watson Brewer's ex-wife. She was first mentioned in Book #1 Kristy's Great Idea.

She looks like an older version of Karen-with blonde hair, blue eyes, freckles, glasses, and light skin tone just like Karen. The resemblance between them is noted on book covers and in a few books, Karen notes the resemblance of both of them.

Family & FriendsEdit

After her divorce, Lisa married Seth Engle, who is now Karen and Andrew's stepfather. Lisa still has contact with Watson, due to a custody arrangement that has Karen and Andrew alternating between their father and stepmother's house and their mother and stepfather's house. She still maintains a good relationship with her ex-husband.

She also has a mother (whom Karen refers to as Grandma Packett in BSLS #1 Karen's Witch) still living in the area.

One of her friends is Amy Morris, a famous movie star. In the first book, she broke her leg and Watson had to sign insurance arrangements. In SM # 1, she invited Mary Anne, Dawn, Kristy, and Claudia to her vacation home. She is a jeweler.



  • In earlier printings of the first few books in the series, Lisa was called "Sheila" and Seth Engle was called "Kendall".
