Lisa has been a licensed science teacher in various countries for ten years, which culminated in being Department Chair for Science in her previous position in the USA. She has a particular interest in the health and well-being of her students, which led to a Masters in Education in Pastoral Care, Guidance and Student Support with one of the oldest universities in Europe. This was completed as she trained as an International Baccalaureate Specialist in Biology in Singapore. As a result of her experiences with students from over 70 nationalities in Singapore, her thesis focused on researching good practice in intercultural education.
In her spare time, Lisa enjoys working with underprivileged children. Her first experience was when she was 19 years old (whilst studying her undergraduate in Biology) in a behavioral unit in a local school in Scotland. One of her most memorable experiences was when she traveled to Tanzania during her summer break to work with children through a humanitarian and education based society at the University of Aberdeen- for which she was also the publicity manager. Lisa has also been recently working with a children’s home in Johor and looks forward to further helping the local community. She also enjoys traveling with her husband (especially to try local delicacies), nature trails, photography, dancing and reading.
