Lisa has lived most of her life in British Columbia, moving from Vancouver to spend the last 11 years in Okanagan Centre in the District of Lake Country with her husband Brent LaBounty.   Travels and employment have taken her throughout Canada, the US, Europe and Asia, through cities large and small. Settling in Lake Country, was a choice, and one that she is happy to have made – enjoying the beautiful scenery, rural setting and friendly neighbours that make Lake Country a great place to live and work.

Lisa is active in her community and her volunteer duties have included time with the Lake Country Boys and Girls Club, Lake Country Rotary Club, and on the Regional District of the Central Okanagan’s Waste Management Advisory Group.  She currently sits on the Regional District of the Central Okanagan’s Agricultural Advisory Committee and the Lake Country Tennis Club executive (yes Lake Country there is a tennis club).  Lisa’s lifestyle is also active, and she enjoys all the Okanagan has to offer the outdoor sports enthusiast.

With a Master’s degree in Business Administration, and an undergraduate degree in Political Science, Lisa understands how the municipal, provincial and federal political systems work.  Previous positions in both the private and public sectors have given her experience in business development, government relations, and managing large budgets.   Her current role as a consultant has her managing projects providing marketing and communications, operations and financial management guidance for small to medium sized businesses.

Lisa, at the encouragement of her neighbours, is pleased to step up to the plate to represent Okanagan Centre residents as a member of Council for the 2011 – 2014 municipal term.   Talking to current Lake Country Councillors, she realizes the learning curve is steep, and the time commitment large, but all worth the undertaking, as a responsibility of public service, and in helping make Okanagan Centre and Lake Country a better place.
