Dr. Lisa Parsons is a board certified ob-gyn. She received her undergraduate education at Skidmore College where she received a degree in biochemistry in addition to a wonderful liberal arts education. 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 in which she graduated in 2001. She completed her residency at Maine Medical Center in 2005 and was fortunate enough to work at All About Woman and Mercy Hospital until 2013 as a full-time ob-gyn working closely (and delivering) many in the Portland area community. Looking to spread her wings and try something new Lisa decided to split her time between teaching as the discipline chief and professor at the University of New England for the medical students, in addition to continuing her clinical skills as an ob-gyn as a laborist- nocturnist in the Lewiston area .
Wishing to continue to grow, and explore new opportunities, Lisa was lucky enough to find and collaborate with her partners at Mindful Roots.
In addition to medicine and teaching, Lisa is a certified scuba diver, lover of all things bulldog, and cares dearly for her friends and family.
