Lisa is a 6x iron-distance champion and multiple record holder, making regular appearances on podiums around the world. She has competed in over 60 full- and half-distance triathlons, has been a professional since 2009 and is one of the top 5 women ever to have run the most sub-3 marathons in Ironman distance racing.
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 positivism and willingness to push through.
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 massive 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.
