Started playing: 1991

How I started playing: Educated and trained as an actor and director for the stage, Lisa began playing freestyle in her late twenties with fellow actor and freestyle champion, Randy Silvey.

Favorite move: Hugging! Favorite Disc Move: challenging consecutive combinations, especially if quirky! Adding spins to any move, moves that require quirky or unusual body positions, and beauty. Current fave is a standing gitis pull off of a throw.

Other fun: In addition to frisbee, Lisa is interested in outdoor pursuits including backpacking/hiking, camping, biking, and walking in all weathers.

Partners past & present: Cindy Kruger, Matt Gauthier, Randy Silvey, Mary Lowry, Arthur Coddington, Rodney Sanchez, Lori Daniels, The Beast, and Joel Rogers.


Lisa's training in the theatre allows her to bring unique performance and movement skills to her freestyle play. Like many other disc athletes, she has competed in Ultimate frisbee, tennis, and a variety of other competitive sports that enhance disc and teamwork skills and foster sportsmanship. In order to stay flexible, focused, and strong for competitions, Lisaıs current fitness/cross-training regimen includes integrated step fitness, yoga, bosu, weight training, and dancing.

Lisa has won several major and minor titles since beginning her career in 1991. With Cindy Kruger, she won the Womenıs Pairs division of the FPA World Championships in 2005, 2004, and 2003, and with Mary Lowry, she earned the top title in the Women's division three times (1994, 1997, 2000). She won the Mixed Pairs title with partner Matt Gauthier in 2007 and in 2005. In 2000 and in 2003, Lisa earned the Mixed Pairs title with partner Arthur Coddington.
