Lisa has been weight training since 2003 and has been conditioning for competitive entry since 2008. She first really got into bodybuilding in 2006 while she was living in Japan while she was teaching English. Her boyfriend at the time was a Japanese bodybuilding champion and she started reading up on bodybuilding, such as Negrita Jayde, and started training with weights. In 2007, after she got married, she went to see the 2007 Ms. Olympia competition for their honeymoon and was impressed when she saw female bodybuilders for the first time in real life. Former UK junior champion Lewis Breed oversees her training and pre-contest preparation for bodybuilding. She competed in her debut competition at the 2009 NABBA England, placing second place behind Jennie Ellam. She then competed at the 2009 NABBA Universe achieving second place to Larissa Cunha. Her most notable achievement came from securing first place in the Ladies Physique class at the UKBFF British Championships. On March 19, 2014, she revealed that she had received her IFBB professional card, allowing her to compete at the professional level.
