Lisa understands that for many people, going to medical appointments is something they’d rather avoid.
That’s why she knows how important it is to make people feel more at ease when they visit the clinic.
“I pride myself on going that extra mile to help clients feel comfortable. If they can look forward to coming in and having a chat, it makes it so much easier and less daunting.”
Lisa has worked in administration and customer service for most of her working life. Her experience as a medical receptionist at a large medical centre, at the front desk of another hearing care clinic, and as a volunteer for the SA Ambulance service in Yankalilla, makes her perfectly suited to her role at My Hearing.
“I’ll be working at the front counter, helping clients with their enquiries and making sure they leave our clinic with a smile.”
Lisa has recently started studying to be a meditation teacher.
She’s also a keen motorbike rider.
“At the age of 42, I bought a motorbike and I promised myself I’d learn to ride it. I started off in my very short driveway, practicing at every opportunity to go up and down.
“Then when I got my learner’s permit, I practiced riding my bike around the block. For a while, I could only turn left. Eventually, I gained the courage to go around a very small roundabout on the Christie’s Beach Esplanade and up into Port Noarlunga.
“After that, no one could stop me! Since obtaining my license, I’ve ridden my motorbike to Phillip Island Motor Grand Prix twice, Bathurst once, and all around Tasmania. I love the freedom of riding my bike. I’ve owned a Yamaha cruiser, Kawasaki 750 Vulcan and a Suzuki ZZR 600. I like to get out and about and discover my surroundings with my little Jack Russell Abbey.”
