Lisa was born and brought up in Lancashire where she went to school and college and where her parents still live. Lisa now lives in Romiley with her partner Ed and is a keen community activist. She volunteers in several local groups including the New Horizons Canal Boat for disabled people and their carers and as a Director of Stockport Credit Union.
Lisa has a track record of getting things done, from getting the 380/381 bus route changed to stopping at Morrison's again to leading on the campaign to secure Specialist Status for Stepping Hill hospital. Lisa was elected to Stockport Council to represent Bredbury Green & Romiley ward in 2016.
Lisa has been a school governor for twelve years and is driven to improve education both locally and nationally. Lisa graduated from Durham University with a degree in Mathematics and went on to gain an MBA from the London Business School.
Previously, Lisa worked as Chief Executive of an international development charity that provides education and resources for children and young people. Lisa also has 12 years of experience working in international finance. These strong foundations, along with her voluntary community work, mean that Lisa understands the difference made by the Lib Dem income tax threshold increase to people locally, and also how to make sure that big business pays its fair share.
Lisa is the kind of person that local people want to stand up for them both locally and nationally. Her energy, experience and enthusiasm speak volumes on the doorstep, but it is her proven ability to get things done that sets her apart.
