Lisa Lepine, MD, FACOG

Early life experiences ignited my passion to advance women’s autonomy over their bodies.

The desire to advocate for women is what compelled me to a career in women’s health. I started my career in academic teaching positions, later directing care for the underserved in nonprofit centers. I have worked overseas in educational and clinical roles for humanitarian organizations, most recently in African countries with Doctors Without Borders. Enriched by diverse international experiences, I delight in treating women from other countries and cultures, with the occasional opportunity to speak French or Spanish.

My approach to providing care is through trusted partnership – care that is individualized, supportive, and science-based. Beyond treasuring the perpetual wonder of birth, I also particularly appreciate assisting women during times of transition - adolescence and menopause. Adolescent care presents the opportunity to foster development of a healthy body image and mutually positive sexual relationships. For menopause, I offer the spectrum from personalized hormonal and nonhormonal treatment for mood and sleep disturbances to minimally invasive outpatient surgery for stress urinary incontinence.

With two young adult daughters in college and early careers, my husband and I relocated to Alaska to work while exploring this majestic state through hiking, biking, and skiing. I am gratified to join the team of top-notch clinicians at AWC.
