Lisa joined Burnaby Chorus (now Westcoast Harmony) in 1990 where she sang for 10 years before moving to Edmonton. She was an assistant director with Gateway Chorus in Edmonton for several years and is now the director of Alberta Heartland Chorus.
Having caught the “quartet bug” early on, Lisa has sung with several quartets over the years. She currently sings baritone in Double Take Quartet with her daughter, Kristina. The other half of the quartet is also a mother/daughter duo. Lisa says, “This has been such a wonderful journey sharing our passion for music with our daughters. It will be an experience that I will always treasure!”
Lisa has held several positions on the Region 26 Education Faculty including coach, Arranger Coordinator, and, most recently, Chapter Visit Coordinator. She has also served on the Regional Convention Steering Committee for two of the conventions hosted in Edmonton.
Music has been a career, as well as a hobby, for Lisa. She holds a Bachelor of Education degree as a Music Specialist from the University of Alberta and has taught kindergarten as well as music and band at the elementary and junior high levels. Currently, Lisa is the owner of Gymboree Play & Music in Edmonton, which offers programs in music, art and play for babies and toddlers, with their parents. Every day is full of singing, bubbles and laughter!
