Councillor Lisa Atwood
As the newly appointed Councillor for Doboy Ward, Lisa Atwood believes in bringing the community together by building better infrastructure, supporting community groups and improving green spaces.
Growing up in Stanthorpe as one of eight children, Lisa knows the value of hard work and isn’t afraid to roll up her sleeves to get things done. Seeing the positive outcomes of strong community ties in her youth, Lisa knows that the community is at its best when it works together and has strong leadership.
After completing her high school education in Stanthorpe, Lisa moved to Carina in 2009 to commence study at the University of Queensland, where she gained a Bachelor of Communication. Lisa feels privileged to call Carina home, where she now resides with her husband Todd and their two young daughters. With a young family, Lisa values the beautiful greenspaces within the Doboy Ward and understands the importance of improving, preserving and maintaining them.
In 2018, Lisa and Todd started their own small business. The experience of being a business owner has enabled Lisa to understand the importance of listening to, and heeding feedback from, her customers, as well as ensuring every dollar is invested wisely.
Lisa has enjoyed working in a number of areas, including banking, communication, non-for-profit organisations, hospitality and politics. Her background in politics has given her a real, hands on sense of what people need and want in their communities. When the role of Councillor for Doboy Ward became available, Lisa was ready to step in and serve the community.
Lisa is currently appointed to the Field Services Committee and is actively involved in supporting a wide variety of local community groups.
Lisa believes in putting people first and in the inclusion and representation of all. She’s hit the ground running, tackling issues such as street parking, preserving green spaces and improving sporting facilities.
