Lisa is a 6x iron-distance champion and multiple course record holder, making regular appearances on podiums around the world. She has been a professional triathlete since 2009 and business owner since 2008. A professional triathlete for 12 years, Lisa is now making the shift to elite ultra trail running and other endurance events. She already has 3 wins and 2 course records under her belt.
Lisa is known for her consistency, strength, perseverance, 'can do' and 'never give up' attitude. She is a relentless presence with closing run speed and persistence to the bitter end, never letting the competition feel content. She attributes this perseverance after experiencing a turning point in her family life when, at age 11, Lisa's father was in a swimming accident that left him quadriplegic. This experience and her father's positive approach to a devastating life change is part of her moral fiber that gives her endless positivity and willingness to push through. Lisa started a landscape design consulting business in 2008, in a time that many thought was foolish. She forged on, powered by her belief that her clientele was looking for change and she could provide that. It turned out to be a bold, successful move.
Lisa truly believes in community, integrity and giving back. She is a regular at local events - either competing or volunteering. When not racing, Lisa enjoys travelling, baking, landscape design and overzealous home improvement projects.
She has taught bicycle safety classes as a League Cycling Instructor, assists at local events and takes a great interest in helping people of all ages lead active, healthy lifestyles. She is open, approachable, kind, hard-working, tireless, fair and is a fierce friend.
