Lisa was born and raised in White Rock, British Columbia. She graduated from University of Victoria with a Bachelors of Arts in Anthropology in 2003.
What do you do with that, you ask? You travel the world while pondering your future and realize you were meant to be a nurse!
Lisa returned from her soul searching and graduated from Dalhousie University with a degree in Registered Nursing in 2010. Thereafter she worked in Cardiovascular Intensive Care in Halifax and then in the General Intensive Care in Fort McMurray, Alberta.
Lisa always knew she wanted to make the transition into outpatient nursing. She had a particular passion for prevention medicine and was looking for an opportunity to make the switch. Through a chance meeting in 2014 she met Dr. Zentner and the stars aligned.
Lisa joined the Revolution Team in September 2015 and fast became a shining star in prevention medicine. Her capacity for learning and problem solving is unmatched. She has spent the last few years focusing on her communication skills and developing her expertise in motivational communication. In addition to expanding her knowledge in management of Diabetes Care and Diabetes Education she has become an expert in Obesity Nursing.
Lisa’s sense of compassion becomes clear within minutes of meeting her. She has an innate ability to see the positive in every situation and to help others focus on it. In addition to being an outstanding nurse, she’s just a really good person. She is smart, kind and her sense of commitment to her patients and her coworkers is a tribute to her profession.
“Working in Obesity and Prevention Medicine and learning from this team every day has caused me to fall in love with nursing all over again. As a nurse, I am more fulfilled than ever. When I worked in the Intensive Care I helped save lives. Now that I work at Revolution Medical I help change lives..... there’s a big difference.”
