Lisa has her Master’s degree in Social Work and works as a therapist. She has three active teenage boys. Throughout her 20’s and 30’s she struggled with her weight – losing weight then gaining it back plus more losing it again, only to gain it back. That changed when her middle son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. She felt a responsibility to model a healthy lifestyle through food and fitness. “It increased my resolve for our whole family to live a healthy and active life.” Lisa competed in two bodybuilding competitions and was a finalist for the “Lifestyle Achievement Award” at the 2009 Ms. Natural Bodybuilding Championships.

“Doing a bodybuilding show gave me a goal to shoot for, but learning to live a lifestyle of health and fitness by working with my trainer and going through a lifestyle transformation myself has been the most rewarding part of this journey. If I can help anyone else make some of these same changes it will make it even more worth it. Being a therapist has helped me figure out some of the emotional causes of eating and has been a significant factor in my ability to help others in their quest to make positive life changes.”

Lisa is a trainer and coach with TeamTraining; which specializes in the bodybuilding, figure, and bikini competition industry.
