ScART Founder Lisa McKenzie in National Capital One Commercial

If Lisa McKenzie sets her mind to something, it’s going to happen. She’s a self-made businesswoman. And she’s the reason more than 150 women have regained their self-confidence after overcoming cancer.


In 2010, Lisa McKenzie had an idea to make bra straps stylish. The idea took off and soon after starting her Ooh La Bra business, she was traveling the country and selling her product at more than 500 retailers.


Amidst the success, Lisa realized she wanted her business to stand for something more. She wanted to lift people up in an even bigger way. And that’s why she created a program focused on an issue that was deeply personal for her: helping women navigate life after cancer.

“Remarkable Woman” Lisa McKenzie transforms the lives of women who have cancer


New Orleans -   Lisa McKenzie grew up thinking she'd like to produce shows on Broadway.  Her sense of style, her creativity, her ability to dream big coupled with her attention to detail-- all of it would be perfect for taking an idea and turning it into a blockbuster.


Today, McKenzie uses all those traits to produce a show that is as glitzy as anything you'd see on Broadway, with an entirely different purpose.

McKenzie is the founder and CEO of "You Night," a nine month empowerment program for women who have cancer or are cancer survivors. And nearly every woman who enters the program feeling fearful or embarrassed, will finish nine months later by strutting confidently down a runway in a Broadway-style fashion show.
