About Us

Lisa Stanton-Smith

My journey started decades ago as a national level 800m & 1500m runner. Driven by the pursuit of excellence, and a strong desire to be the best I can be: I sought out any strategies that could make a 1% difference to my performance. In a journey that was riddled with injury and setback: health and the mental game became my secret weapons. At different times, they made me and broke me.

My role in guiding others to untap their greatness started early too. As early as high school, I tutored other students in chemistry & science. This progressed to coaching roles, an athlete development officer for young athletes and eventually as a volunteer sports trainer at both the world police and fire games (Vancouver), and the homeless world cup (Melbourne).

When my athletic career ended, I went on a winding road (via New Zealand) to become a clinical nutritionist. During that time I ended up hospitalized with glandular fever, and developed chronic fatigue as a result. Something my type A personality didn’t want to accept. But I inevitability did, and learnt to heal my body through a very different nutritional and health strategy.

Once qualified, I spent the first two years of practice working in two different health clinics within the Macedon Ranges: an idealistic semi-rural part of Victoria, Australia. During this time I co-hosted dozens of speaking opportunities with local and international sporting squads, corporate organizations and community groups.  This provided invaluable experience with hundreds of clients, before I transitioned to online services in 2020.

More and more, I found myself attracting clients who wanted more than ‘just’ nutritional support. My clients were wanting coaching and mentoring  to reach all of their wellbeing goals. They wanted help untapping their mindset for greater success. And so as 2021 came to a close, I shifted to offer high performance wellbeing & mindset coaching. I’ve loved and thrived off supporting the change makers, visionaries & leaders, whose own shifts in wellness have gone on to create ripples far greater than I could imagine. This work is such a gift to us both.

Outside of my coaching, I love hiking and running with my Australian kelpie ‘River’; exploring and travelling this beautiful world; tending to our edible backyard garden; baking; admiring a sunset; or enjoying a glass of red with friends.

For those who like to know credentials: I’m a registered nutritionist with the Australian Natural Therapists Association. And my qualifications are: Bachelor of Nutritional & Dietetic Medicine from Endeavour College of Natural Health.
