A lifelong learner, Lisa has a background in policy analysis and health planning. She is also a Cordon Bleu-trained chef and, until recently, was the owner/operator of a bar and restaurant in rural New Zealand. As she entered her 60s, Lisa became increasingly aware of the impact that alcohol and other lifestyle choices were having on her own health and the health of those around her. Using This Naked Mind to find freedom from alcohol, Lisa embarked on a new journey to become a qualified health and sobriety coach. She has gained certification as a Prekure Health Coach and a TNM coach. She has also completed the Prekure Advanced Certificate in Nutrition and is currently working towards an Advanced Certificate in Mental Health and a certificate in neuroscience. Lisa’s particular passion is helping ‘baby boomers’ take control of their own health and thrive into old age.
