Name: Lisa

Hometown: St. Albert, AB

Occupation: Diagnostic Medical Sonographer

Life goal:  To spread positivity and good vibes to everyone I meet. If I can make a difference to one person a day then that is truly amazing. I also would like to start some kind of health and fitness inspired business.

Favourite type of workout: Anything from machines, weights, kettlebells, TRX, plyometrics, HIIT and more. I recently finished my first half marathon, and I also love hot yoga.

Why do you love the game of hockey: As a child I grew up watching my cousin play hockey and it was always such an amazing way to gather friends and family. I love hockey because it's not just a sport but a method to bring people together.

Something unique about you: My siblings and I were all born in different countries.

Favourite place in Oil Country: The infamous Glenora stairs

Dream vacation: Maldives

Best concert I've ever been to: Definitely my own, when I’m singing in the shower. I am pretty much an undercover rock star.  

Favourite food: I eat about 1000 times a day… so everything… but most of all I love Japanese food.

Dream date:  Skydiving

Prized possession: My best friend in the entire world, my Staffordshire Bull Terrior, Mason.

Words to live by: We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.

Describe your personal style: My style is diverse. I love jeans, a t-shirt and sneakers but I also love getting dolled up in a dress and heels.  

Why did you want to be part of the Octane: I wanted to be a part of a sisterhood that focuses not only on performance and entertainment but leadership, community involvement and being a role model as well.

Who inspires you: Every person I have met or am about to meet will inspire me in a unique way. However, my mother and her compassion, love, and personality inspires me the most.

What is your performance background: Numerous years of dance and cheerleading since I was six. Participation in the world games and grey cup opening ceremonies, as well as USA college cheerleading nationals.

Favourite quote: I don't have a favourite quote but I have a favourite philosophy which is to practice gratitude in everything we do and see.

Best part of being a member of the Octane: I have had the extraordinary experience of participating in volunteer work including Stollery Children's Hospital visits, Read In Week and Monday Morning Magic. Also, the lifelong friendships I have made with the girls on the team is an incredible aspect of being a part of the Oilers Octane.
