Lisa McBee began her volleyball coaching career in 2006 at the Junior High level combining her love of the sport and her love of coaching. She soon lent her skills to club volleyball, coaching U14 and U16 teams and has served as the head coach for NCVBC 14 Red team since 2014. Lisa joined the Clackamas High School program in 2014 as the Head Coach for JV2 and accepted the JV Head Coach position in 2017.
In the fall 2018, Lisa is excited to assume the role as Head Coach for the Clackamas High School program. She currently holds membership in AVCA and USAV and is IMPACT/ASEP Certified, NFHS CIC certified, and NFHS AIC Level 1. Always seeking to improve her coaching skills, Lisa regularly attends coaching clinics such as the Art of Coaching Volleyball and Gold Medal Squared.
Lisa is passionate about the game of volleyball and committed to helping student-athletes reach their fullest potential on and off the court. It is Lisa’s goal that through the game and the athletic experience student-athletes will develop the skills necessary to thrive in life – perseverance, hard work, sacrifice, character, courage, compassion; ultimately becoming intentional individuals with empathy and integrity who are self-aware, who will lead, be responsible, and be a positive force in their community for life.
A Pittsburgh native, Lisa moved to Portland with her husband in 1996. She has been a registered nurse for over 30 years with experience in trauma, epidemiology, nursing management and most recently as a district nurse. She has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Master’s degree in Public Administration. The most interesting place she has worked is at the Guantanamo Bay, Naval Hospital, where she was awarded the Meritorious Civilian Service Medal. Her two daughters both attend Baylor University.
In her leisure time, Lisa enjoys reading, playing competitive tennis – both singles and doubles – running, cross training, traveling, and playing with the family’s two dogs and two cats.
