Born and raised in the outback NSW town of Broken Hill, Lisa headed to Sydney immediately after finishing school to pursue a journalism career. After starting out in the fashion department of a bridal magazine and writing the odd beauty blurb, she made the move to London and trained on the job at Haymarket Publishing.
Lisa has spent the past 20 years writing about everything from couture, interior design and the intricacies of getting married overseas to social media, hot spa destinations and eco building practices. She continues to contribute to a wide range of online and print publications, and manages an inordinate number of Facebook pages.
Based in the Blue Mountains since 2006, Lisa has added Events Coordinator to her CV by organising annual festivals in the garden village of Leura.

The mountains have been her home for sixteen years which just about qualifies her as a local.
