The Net Worth of Lisa Robertson
How rich is Lisa Robertson? As of late-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is over $5 million, earned largely through a successful career on television, from which exposure also led her to hosting work for other programs, and as she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings
Very little is known about Lisa’s childhood, except that she grew up in a small town with her family. After matriculating from high school, she then enrolled in Collegedale’s Southern College where she completed a degree in Long Term Health Care Administration. With her studies complete, she looked for a career that was compatible to her interests, but one of her first jobs was in Knoxville with a new home shopping channel that was being built from scratch. She was with a small team from the channel’s inception, and her work there built her interest in hosting, and she then found work with the Pearl Association of America & Japan in 1990, as a representative. She also tried her hand at pageantry and won the title of Miss Tennessee, which then saw her start working with the program entitled “Drug Free Tennessee”, and was subsequently rewarded by the governor of the state for her outstanding service for the program. Shortly afterwards, she was hired as a host for QVC.

QVC and Other Projects
QVC – or Quality Value Convenience – is a shopping channel network specializing in televised home shopping, owned by the Qurate Retail Group and founded by Joseph Segel in 1986, with its headquarters in West Chester, Pennsylvania, from where it broadcasts to seven countries around the world – according to reports, it’s received by more than 350 million households. Over the next 20 years, Robertson would work as one of the presenters of the channel, helping demonstrate and promote numerous of its products for sale. Her popularity grew as one of the faces of QVC.
Lisa was also offered hosting work with other programs, which she accepted, including “Friday Night”, “PM Style”, and as a guest on the “Wendy Williams Show”. She has made guest appearances in “Good Morning America” and “Project Runway All Stars” too, and also forayed into acting work, besides starting her own brand called GILI, which offers various fashion accessories as well as home décor options for sale.
After 20 years of working with the company, Lisa left QVC in 2014, the details as to why have not been made public. This caused many fans and viewers to react, since a lot of them enjoyed her presentations. Rumors started going around, and according to several sources, she had experienced harassment from stalkers while working with QVC, which left her afraid. One of her stalkers was named Peter Ferreira, who was apparently well-known for harassing her for more than a decade; he was eventually apprehended and sent to jail.
Around the time she left, rumors also started spreading that she had passed away but it was later revealed that the one who passed away was someone who just shared the same name as hers. She later personally denied all of the death rumors. Since leaving the company, Lisa spends her time on public speaking engagements, talking about social issues, and has also been interviewed by popular publications, including “USA Today”, and “Vogue”. She continues to manage her brand of merchandise as well.

Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Robertson is in a relationship with fitness trainer Eric McGee, who trains her too. They met as he had an office which was near that of QVCs, and have been together for more than three years, although he is 11 years younger than her. Reports state that her mother passed away due to ovarian cancer.
Lisa is also a trained classical violinist, and also sings, and has performed publicly, including at Carnegie Hall. During her free time, she travels to other countries, to more than 20, learning more about their cultures. She also enjoys shopping, and experimenting with new cuisine.
Similar to numerous television personalities, she is highly active online, having accounts on various websites, though unlike other personalities, she mainly uses these platforms to help promote her online business of selling fashion items and home décor. She has a Facebook page which she uses to post prices and promote some of her recent products, and does the same on YouTube, but through video promotions. She has a personal website too, which contains her shop and all she has available for sale.
