Lisa Donaldson APD

Canberra, Australia

Lisa Donaldson is an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD), Accredited Nutritionist, Sports Dietitian, educator and DAA Media Spokesperson.

Lisa’s journey to become a dietitian was a personal one. She was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease, lactose intolerance, gastrointestinal upsets and a kidney condition over ten years ago. Her desire to feel better was enough to send her back to university, despite loving her role as a school teacher.

Lisa is empathetic to anyone who has recently been diagnosed with any condition; she has been there and knows it can be tough! With a background in education and fitness she has a large toolbox of skills and strategies to help you achieve your goals... Her daily mantra is ‘make life happen'. In life she truly believes anything is possible and is here to lead the way.

Lisa is a sessional teacher at the University of Canberra. You will also find Lisa performing in schools as 'The Food Detective'; through the infectious power of song, rhyme and dance.

Lisa is also well known in the 12WBT world, as 12WBT and Voome’s Lead Dietitian – supporting hundreds of thousands of members on their own nutrition and fitness journey.

Lisa has been working in the Fitness Industry for over a decade and is a highly regarded Group Fitness Instructor. She has hung up her cycling shoes for a short time but can be found chasing her child and climbing mountains! As a Mum, Lisa certainly understands the demands of managing a busy household.
