“Empowering women to trust their bodies and to achieve their desired birth experiences”

As a native of Southern California, Lisa is thrilled to return home and serve the women of Orange County with midwifery care and childbirth options. Her nursing career began as a Labor and Delivery nurse for 20 years, during which time she gained knowledge of the birth process and respect for childbearing women. Her passion for women’s health care led her to further her education at  the University of Southern California where she became a Certified Nurse Midwife and Women’s Health Care Nurse Practitioner.  She has spent the last fifteen years offering women childbearing options, providing them with support, and empowering them to partner in decision-making regarding all health care choices, especially childbirth. Her sincere hope is to join with the physicians of OCWMG to provide the best care alternatives to women.

In her free time, Lisa enjoys spending time with her husband of over 30 years and her two adult children, who are indeed the loves of her life. She enjoys many creative outlets, her favorite being that of glass fusing.

Dear Patient,

Due to the high call volume, we are asking that only emergent issues contact our office. For all other inquires please use the Patient Portal as we will respond quicker. This is the fastest way for you to communicate with your provider.

Our number one priority is the health and safety of all the members of our community, there by adhering to CDC recommendations. In so doing, for the protection of patients and staff we are allowing ONLY PATIENTS to enter the office. NO visitors or children at this time.

Due the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, we are rescheduling patient’s routine appointments (i.e. Well Women Exam, Ultrasound, Mammography, Bone Density (DEXA)). Please do not call us, as we are inundated by phone calls, we will call you.

All OB patients we ask that you keep your appointment as scheduled, unless you feel ill. Our Triage Nurses are available by phone for your convenience.
