Lisa Brown

Yarra Yarra Rowing Club (VIC)

Lisa joined Yarra in the 2004/05 season as a coxswain. Her coxing skills quickly developed and she became a national level coxswain.

In 2009, she coxed the Australian PR3 Coxed four, then known as the mixed LTA coxed four. She was awarded McVilly Pearce pin number 744 for this national representation.

In between her coxing work, Lisa served as the club's communications manager in the 2013-14 season.

Lisa has turned her great enthusiasm and rowing knowledge to umpiring and proving to be an excellent official. She has followed in the footsteps of her father Mark, also a Yarra member, as a rower and BRO.
