Lisa Anne Munday (born 14 June 1968)[1] is an Australian politician. She has been a Labor member of the Western Australian Legislative Assembly since the 2021 state election, representing Dawesville.[2]

Prior to entering politics Munday worked as a paramedic and registered psychologist.[3]

In July 2020 she was selected to contest the seat for Labor,[3][4] after being approached by the Ambulance Union and WA Labor.[5] In her election campaign Munday received mentoring from Federal politician, Ged Kearney, through EMILY's List Australia.[6] She defeated Opposition Leader Zak Kirkup on a swing of over 14 percent, taking 63.9 percent of the two-party vote and turning a seat that Labor had never previously won into a safe Labor seat in one stroke. She actually won 57 percent of the primary vote, enough to win the seat without the need for preferences.[7]
