After High School, I studied 2 Years at ETA (1st year, Personal Training, 2nd year, Exercise Specialist). My high school offered me to coach Basketball shortly after and I have been there ever since.

2011 – 2019 I worked towards my vision of opening up Lisha Fitness studio, working in various gyms, EMS, Coaching kids, Mobile Personal Training in expanding my knowledge and increasing my experience to be able to run my own company.

I overcame 3 Major Injuries over the years from sports and lifting heavy weights.
