Masters Coach

Coach Lisa is one of the original Nadadores, having joined the team in 1974 at 10 years old. She swam as an age group and High School swimmer for the next 7 years. During this time, she achieved several Top 10 awards and made the Jr National team several times. She swam varsity for 4 years at Capistrano Valley High School, where she was a key member of a championship team. At Saddleback College, Coach Lisa was a member of the State Championship team, as well as state champion in several events. In 1984, she was inducted into the Hall of Fame at Saddleback College.
Life, work, kids etc...kept her out of the water for @25 years and she joined the masters team in 2004. She loves to travel and competed in the 2004, 2006 and 2008 World Championships. She hit her goal of top ten in the world in 2008 in Perth, Australia.


The last several years have brought crazy changes and she found herself on our pool deck again in January 2019. However, injuries have continued to hinder her training and this opened up an opportunity to coach. She is new to being on deck but really enjoys meeting and coaching masters swimmers. She loves their fiercely competitive spirt and overall zest for life and fitness.


The Nadadore pool deck is a positive environment of encouragement and team work and I am thrilled to be back on the team in both capacities.....GO NADS!”
Competitive swimming has been a part of her life since 8 years old and she hopes to continue until she is 108!


Coach Lisa recently retired from the security industry and is exploring coaching, art, pet sitting/ walking and generally learning to slow down and enjoy life.
