About Lisa

Lisa has worked in New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Ireland since 1994. Since joining Boffa Miskell in 2004, she has played a major role in urban development and renewal projects within the Auckland region, including the multi-award winning community renewal project Talbot Park in Glen Innes.

Experience spans a range of areas including designing and facilitating innovative consultation and community participation processes, master planning, town centre regeneration strategies, urban design, design guidance, and conservation and heritage planning. She enjoys working with clients and the wider community to develop creative urban design solutions for complex sites that reflect a wide range of interests and user groups. She has a strong interest in involving local communities in decision-making.

Special interests lie in management of the cultural and historic built environment. She is a member of ICOMOS New Zealand and has contributed to and prepared conservation plans for important heritage sites internationally.
