Born in the UK
A Northampton lass, Lisa left home to study at Manchester University and worked her way through her further education waiting tables. Then Lisa studied Chartered Accountancy in London whilst training in an accounting firm specialised in the entertainment business.
She qualified as a Chartered Accountant and began work immediately as Financial Controller for the Broadgate Club, Penna Saunders and Sidney Ltd among others. Never one to sit idle, Lisa also dabbled in property development in the greater London area.
Change of Space
In 1995 Lisa left the UK to raise her family in the pastoral landscape of the Aveyron in France whilst starting a baking business specialising in bespoke cakes and traditional English and American desserts, cookies and biscuits.
From Cookies to Cosmetics
In 2013 Lisa joined La Rivière Distribution bringing her bi-cultural understanding of finance and accounting to help grow the business and in 1 short year helped double sales.
Since making the move from cakes to cosmetics at La Rivière Distribution Lisa has regained her slim figure and looks 10 years younger!
She shares her renovated farmhouse with a lizard named Freckles, a rabbit called Fudge, Tasha the cat, two Tibetan Terriers Frisbee and Teo, a husband and two lovely children.
