Lisa is a recent CSNN graduate and life-long athlete. She teaches Sports Nutrition and Advanced Nutrition and Athletic Performance. She holds degrees in Psychology and Education and worked as a teacher in the elementary panel of the Ottawa Catholic School Board for 15 years. The almost simultaneous events of beginning a family and her husband having new-found, food-related health issues launched her journey into a more holistic lifestyle, where she challenged herself to learn more about where food comes from and to adopt a cleaner, greener way of eating. Lisa became so passionate about the misconceptions surrounding ‘healthy’ food and about educating others about what real food is all about, that she pursued studies at CSNN to gain accreditation and begin a new career path.
Lisa lives a busy life with her husband and 3 young children, who are all also active in sport. Throughout her life and career, she has always kept active. From playing top tier soccer as a teenager, to playing varsity field hockey as a university student, to running half-marathons as a personal challenge, Lisa knows the value of remaining fit and active as a part of overall well-being. She runs half-marathons on a regular basis, dabbles in sprint distance triathlon, plays in a women’s ball hockey league, and loves BodyPump. It goes without saying that sports nutrition is paramount in her personal sports endeavours, business and family life.
