She has produced many documentaries on her adventures and loves to share the insights her adventures have bought her with others. She utilises her skills to help others through her motivational speaking engagements, her corporate seminars, her running coaching programmes, her podcast "Pushing the Limits" and her online mindset academy "The Path of an Athlete." which teaches people how to develop mental toughness, emotional resilience, leadership skills and a never quit mentality.

Over and over Lisa has beaten the odds to achieve extraordinary feats in sport, her businesses and most recently on a very personal journey bringing her mother back from near death after a debilitating aneurysm left her with the severest of disabilities and a prediction from the medical fraternity that said she would never have any sort of quality of life again.

Lisa was determined to do whatever it took to bring her back to a full life, she left no stone unturned in her quest to help her mother and now 20 months later she is a walking, dancing, happy miracle, fully back in life and loving every precious day.

Lisa believes that through passion, total commitment and a relentless attitude to forward progress you can achieve what you never thought possible, that we are capable, given the right mental skills to accomplish incredible things.  

It is her mission in life now to impact as many lives as possible through the various channels, courses and programmes she utilises to get her powerful messages out there.
