Lisa M. Murphy, FNP
With a mother who worked as a nurse, family nurse practitioner Lisa Murphy grew up knowing the commitment required by the profession. After completing an undergraduate degree, she jumped into the career with both feet. "I was an emergency room nurse for ten years," Lisa shared. "I loved it, but came to realize I wanted to expand my knowledge and experience in a way that allowed me to be part of the entire patient care experience."
That desire led Lisa to become a family nurse practitioner. while experiences with her own family led her to the field of obstetrics and gynecology. "My experience from prenatal care to birth to post-natal care with my two boys made it clear that I wanted to be a part of obstetrics and gynecology," she explained. "Managing the health of the woman as well as the health of the unborn child is such a great opportunity as well as a great responsibility."
Lisa says the providers and staff at Novant Health Huntersville OB/GYN help her provide the remarkable care she knows every patient deserves. "The commitment of all the providers to put the patients first and to deliver the best possible care at all times keeps me smiling every day I come to work," she shared. "There is consistent collaboration among providers to ensure that each patient is properly cared for. That and the overall friendliness of the environment makes it a great place to work as well as a great place to seek care."
Lisa and her husband, Marty, spend much of their free time traveling to sporting events and practices for their two sons. "We also love taking vacations to the beach or to our cottage on the Allegheny River in Oil City, Pennsylvania," Lisa said. "We also love taking our dogs to Latta Plantation to let them swim and run the trails."
