Trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, and working extensively in theatre, TV and radio – she’s diversified over the years into photography and directing for audio drama.

Lisa’s appeared in a wide range of theatre and television productions, played a regular character in the first two series of BBC’s Casualty, been an alien in BBC’s Doctor Who – and has recently been recognised as the longest running titled character in any audio/radio series – having played the eponymous heroine Bernice Summerfield in the Doctor Who spin-off series The Adventures of Professor Bernice Summerfield, for Big Finish audio, for 24 years.
