Ashley M. Lewis, M.D., F.A.C.C.
Dr. Lewis was born in North Carolina but spent most of her childhood and teenage years in Portland, OR. She has lived in multiple different cities for her medical training including Durham, NC, Cleveland, OH and Atlanta, GA, but she is thrilled to be back in the Research Triangle.
Her family life is very important to her. She is married to a wonderful, supportive husband and they have two children.
Dr. Lewis has played soccer for most of her life, which included playing Division I soccer at Pepperdine University. This experience helped her learn to be a leader and team player, which she feels are valuable skills for life.
In her spare time she enjoys relaxing with friends and family, going to church, running, hiking, boating, skiing and playing soccer.
