Until July 2008 - Worked in ongoing Integrated Health with Jason Mallia where she was his assistant learning about the new technologies of Live Blood Analysis, the Life System and other liver-detox programs.

2003 – 2006
Literacy Teacher – The Learning Centre, Cronulla & Rose Bay
Roles & Responsibilities: Teaching early literacy to children aged 3-13 years and some had complex needs such as autism and challenging behaviour. It was her role to mediate with the child’s family and school on their ongoing academic progress as she undertook an educational program with the child. Lisa was required to make an initial educational assessment to determine the child’s learning style and reading level using a variety o f education al assessment methods such as visualising and verbalising and Spalding. From her assessment and after consultation with the school and family, Lisa would allocate the child a suitable program. She was required to submit a written report of the child’s progress weekly and comprehensively at the conclusion of the child’s time with the centre. Lisa still works here on a casual basis.

This work drew on Lisa’s strengths of empathy and emotional maturity in dealing with some students who were survivors of torture and trauma.
