Lisa was born in Mount Lawley, with her family making Western Australia home for eight generations - first arriving on the ship Marquis of Anglesea. A long-term Stirling resident working as a Science educator, Lisa is an active member of the community. Through working in the fields of genetics and the minerals and resources sector has seen Lisa engaged in industry and academia.

Lisa spends her spare time supporting positive community initiatives and has also run a successful small business. She believes in the power of community and helping the local economy, and that communities thrive when we work together. Lisa believes our environment is one of our biggest assets, and we must look after it by protecting public open space and regulating infill.

Together, Lisa wants to help build safe communities and sustainable suburbs. She knows the positive power of a responsible local government; supporting and influencing our everyday life every day.

Stirling deserves a representative who works for them, who fights to make a positive future for everyone. Together we can build resilient communities; support the local economy; prioritise sustainability; work towards zero waste; promote sensible planning; help rebuild the urban forest for cooler cities and our wildlife.
