Lisa grew up in Penola being part of a family business which has changed over the years from a market garden/strawberry farm with a fruit and vegetable shop to boutique winery 'Raidis Estate'. She moved to Adelaide to complete her Bachelor of Commerce, upon completion worked for Westpac Mortgage processing Centre in Lockleys before relocating to Bordertown to marry a local. Lisa joined Murray Nankivell in March 2000 completing her CPA qualification shortly thereafter.
Lisa works part time so that she can enjoy both work and her family. She is involved in compiling business financial reports and tax returns as well as assisting with the management of both internal and external staff training for the firm.
Lisa has 3 daughters with strong ties within the community; she is highly involved with her children's basketball, netball and school – participating in several committees. She has also administered the Bordertown High School Scholarship Trust Fund for 15 years. Lisa is quite partial to the family wine – her favourite currently being the 'Kelpie' Sauvignon Blanc.
