Lisa grew up on Scotland Island in Pittwater on Sydney’s northern beaches, the breeding ground for many Australian sailing greats including the Beashels, Mottles and the Spithills.


As a ‘tinny terror’ she attended Mona Vale Public School then Pittwater High School with some of these sailing families, and now through her work she’s back mingling with the greats.


A communications degree at the University of Canberra, a career that has seen her rise to the top of her specialist field and three children later has brought her full circle back to the island as a home owner.


Sailing-wise the women’s twilight at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club, regular family campaign at the RL24 Australian Championship  and more recently a campaign for the 2018 Viper Worlds, plus the odd guest spot at regattas, keeps her in touch and active, as does regular Pilates.


Being a thoughtful mother & partner, running a successful business and being a good friend maintain Lisa’s busy and well-rounded life.
