A former lecturer in health and social care, Lisa is a psychology graduate, early childhood studies graduate and spent her first master’s degree considering how societal expectations influence our behaviour. Spending a decade working with parents and children, Lisa has extensive experience of understanding human behaviour, but she soon decided to apply her skills to pets. Re-training as a dog groomer, she set up a home boarding and grooming business, swiftly followed by a cattery. Noticing the same human health issues were apparent in the pets in her care she then set up a raw food store.
Lisa is currently studying an MSc in Human Nutrition and is a freelance writer, consultant, educator and speaker in human and pet health, nutrition and behaviour. Her special interests are biological, cognitive, and nutritional psychology, particularly stress, the microbiome and the gut-mind connection. In other words, what goes on in ours and our pet’s brains, what affects it and whether we can change it.
