Dr. McLeod shares why she’s so passionate about being an OB/GYN.
“I received my undergraduate degree in engineering. But then, in my early twenties, I began to have questions about my own body as a female, which led me to start thinking about becoming a doctor so I could do something significant to affect change in women. I decided to go into osteopathic medicine because it appealed to me from my engineering side — to be able to understand the body mechanics and fluidity of the entire body. When I decided to specialize in obstetrics, I knew I had found my purpose.– Dr. Lisa McLeod
