Team OFFSIDE's most recent podcast guest's dedication to getting more kids trying sports -- and reading -- is an impressive passion project that can't help inspire others to use their own voices, share their own stories, create their own goals and follow their own dreams. Lisa Bowes is doing exactly that herself. She loves what she does, and it shows in the positive impact she has had on so many others through more than three decades of incredible work as a professional speaker, author and award-winning national media personality. A true groundbreaker in sports broadcasting, Lisa has worked for CTV, The Score, CBC, NCAA Productions, TSN (Canadian version of ESPN) and was a host and reporter for women's ice hockey at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, B.C. Drawing upon her background as a media personality and published author, Lisa works with companies to expand their community investment through her incredible Lucy Tries book series. Published by Orca Book Publishers, with international sales and now translated into French, Spanish and Simplified Chinese, Lucy and her friends are true role models for young readers, athletes and anyone who wants to set goals and go for them!
Learn more about the series at www.lucytriessports.com. A promoter of all of the life lessons learned and values gained from sports, Lisa is herself a role model and mentor to many, including several Team Canada alumna who she helped media train and to our very own team members here at OFFSIDE: Making HerStory.
