Lisa is the Owner and Director of Form Imaging. She is registered with the Medical Radiation Technologists Board and a member of the New Zealand Institute of Medical Radiation Technology. She has worked in a number of different Medical Imaging departments over her extensive career in New Zealand and overseas.

Lisa has a Bachelor of Health Science in Medical Imaging (BHScMI) and a Post Graduate Diploma in Sports Rehabilitation and Training (PGDip SR) from St Mary’s College in London.  She has also completed her pilates mat work training with The Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute. She has been living in Queenstown with her husband and three young children since 2011.  

Because of her interest in both medical imaging and the health and fitness industry she has seen an opportunity to provide an important health service to the residents of Queenstown, Wanaka and Central Otago. Currently the closest DEXA scanner for these populations is either Invercargill or Dunedin.  They do not offer the total body composition analysis package.

She hopes that the local residents support her new venture.  Her goal is to help the ageing population enjoy their retirement by preventing debilitating fragility fractures later in life.  The total body composition analysis provides an accurate and reproducible measure of body composition, people can use this information to make positive health and lifestyle changes.
