Lisa has been a Board member for 10 years and is now Patron of Bayswater Elderly Citizens Help Organisation (ECHO). She is also considered  to be the ‘go to’ MP for animal protection and wellbeing, and an advocate for animal-welfare volunteers.

Lisa is responsible for creating and delivering the WA Labor government’s ‘Stop Puppy Farming’ policy, and is working to improve the welfare of greyhounds involved in the racing industry in WA. She combines her experience in animal protection with her support for seniors and the vulnerable as the new patron of POOPS.
