Liisa took the modelling world by storm when she became the Gucci "It" Girl landing three consecutive contracts in 1999 & 2000. Liisa started at Mode Elle Model & Talent Agency in 1993 at the age of 15. Described as "Breathtakingly beautiful" by Tom Ford, Gucci's then designer and creative director, Liisa entered the world of the supermodel, modelling side by side with Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, Gisele Bundchen, Amber Valletta, Shalom Harlow & Kate Moss. Liisa was discovered by Mode Elle Model & Talent Agency owner Audra Anderson while she was back to school shopping at the Quinte Mall with her mother and best friend. The following year, Liisa completed the modelling course offered by Mode Elle and attended the prestigious Canadian Model & Talent Convention ( and the rest is history!

Liisa feels privileged to be represented exclusively in Canada by Mode Elle Model & Talent Agency and Owner / Agent Audra Anderson: "Audra and Mode Elle have been there for me from the very start of my career. By 'there for me', I mean literally there visiting new agencies in foreign cities, helping me make difficult decisions, and supporting me every step of the way. I have seen many young girls in the business with other agents and none have come close to the personal attention and guidance that Audra can give. She cares about all of her girls so much and would do anything to help them to be both happy and successful. My experience with Mode Elle has been professional, caring, knowledgeable and fun! I am lucky to have found myself with this wonderful agency and would recommend them to any young person with dreams of a career in modeling or television! Thank you so very much Mode Elle!"

Besides the coveted Gucci campaign, Liisa has graced the runways ( and has appeared in campaigns for other celebrated fashion icons such as Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Versace, Armani, BCBG & Valentino. Liisa contributes much of her success to her ability to stay focused and also by remaining grounded and being herself. She maintains that you must treat modelling like a business to be successful. The era of the diva is out! "The key to success is to remain grounded, professional and most important staying true to yourself." When a model starts in the industry, the going can be very tough when doors are shut; you must possess the confidence to take the good with the bad and continue to keep your eyes set on your goals."

Mode Elle Model & Talent Agency Owner Audra Anderson credits Liisa's professionalism and personality to her strong family ties. In New York Liisa is placed with 1 Model Management, in Milan with Beatrice Models and in Paris with Elite Model Management. Welcome back Liisa! Mode Elle Model & Talent Agency is very proud of you!
