During her time at college, her parents and brothers made the move from Guilford Connecticut to Maine. Loving the state of Maine, and loving her family, Lisa was happy to be accepted into the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, from which she graduated in 2001.

You may recognize Dr. Lisa as the doctor who delivered your baby (or has taken care of you), co-owner of the medical spa Mindful Roots in Falmouth, Maine, or as a teacher and discipline chief of ob-gyn at UNECOM. You might have just seen her at Trader Joe’s!

As an entrepreneur and trailblazer, Dr. Lisa is excited to be opening Higher Ground Women’s Health, the first gynecology practice in Maine following the direct care model. This practice has been lovingly and mindfully created to bring her heart and healing to you. She is so excited to be providing this service to the community, and to be following her inner compass.
