Her particular areas of interest are stillbirth, severe intrauterine growth restriction, fetal abnormalities, and maternal medical conditions, such as lupus. Lisa particularly enjoys working in a collaborative care model for complex medical conditions in close communication with other specialists.
Lisa received her medical degree from the University of Melbourne and did her specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Mercy Hospital for Women and Royal Women’s Hospital Melbourne, and the National Maternity Hospital in Dublin, Ireland.
Lisa also holds degrees in public health, obstetric ultrasound and gynaecology ultrasound. She is currently on staff at the Royal Women’s Hospital, where she performs obstetric ultrasound and works in clinics for fetal abnormalities and maternal-fetal medicine.
In addition, Lisa is active within the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, previously as the Chair of Examinations for Maternal-Fetal Medicine. She is also a training supervisor, examiner and former councilor.
Outside of work, Lisa enjoys watching the sunrise during her early morning walks and values time spent with her three gorgeous children.
