Here is a little about each of our guest panelists:


Lisa is originally from Gullane, just along the coast from Edinburgh, Scotland. Lisa and her Husband Stephen both moved to Coffs Harbour 9 years ago as Lisa was offered work as a Marine Mammal Specialist. Both Lisa and Stephen fell in love with the Coffs Coast.

Since living on the Coffs Coast Lisa has volunteered with Wires, rehabilitating mainly bats. She was also the Chairperson for 1 year. She went to The Grooming School Australia to learn to be a Dog Groomer, Lisa worked for Pet Stock, then rented the salon from Petstock starting her own business. Only a year later Lisa and Stephen created the vision of Maggie's and opened Australia's only Indoor Dog Cafe serving both Dogs and their adoring owners, as well as a retail store, dog grooming salon, and doggy daycare. Lisa and Stephen have since been featured by Qantas Tourism, Better Homes and Gardens and Lisa starred in Rebel Wilson's Pooch Perfect. Maggie's was also voted Australia's most Dog Friendly Cafe in 2020. Maggie's has now been open for 4.5 years and has grown throughout those years, now with 13 staff members, manufacturing their own range of natural treats, shampoos , skincare and specialising in Pet Nutrition and Holistic health.
