Lisa was born and raised in Southport, Queensland and after transferring to Sydney with the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, started her association with Rotary as the Charter President of Camden/Narellan Rotaract Club (D9750) in 1994.  
In April 1995, she was then selected to be part of the Group Study Exchange team (GSE) from D9750 Australia to D2350 Sweden.    This experience reinforced Lisa’s passion to make a difference locally and globally.  
When Lisa, Gareth and their daughter Sarah moved back to the Gold Coast in December 2010, the connection with Rotary then expanded to include all members of the family.   They are all members of the Rotary Club of Coomera River, of which Lisa and Sarah are past presidents.  Gareth is a past president of the Rotary Club of Hope Island. 
Professionally, Lisa has over 20 years’ experience working in senior executive roles in HR and WHS across the Residential Property industry, Banking and Financial Services and Motoring and Services sectors across Australia and New Zealand. Prior to moving into HR roles, her career included over 10 years in banking and finance.  In parallel with a successful career, Lisa has achieved a diverse range of achievements, so make sure you take time to chat to find out more about DGE Lisa.
Our District 9640 is closely linked to Lisa’s family history and she is proud to have the opportunity to be a leader for Rotary in our district.
