LISA Deeble has always had a passion for sports and is not only a champion in her own right but also encourages younger generations who want to be champions to excel in athletics.
Lisa was born at Box Hill hospital in 1975 and grew up in East Ringwood – the youngest of three girls in her family.
She completed her schooling at Norwood High School after first attending Norwood primary.
After leaving school she started her working life as a real estate representative for Stockdale and Leggo under the guidance of Peter Saligari – yes, the same Peter that is now well known around the Mansfield district.
She then moved to Healesville and as a new mum of twins remained working full time at another real estate company while juggling her family life.
However, it is Lisa’s love of sports that has gained her fame.
