Dr. Sharon Lechner grew up in Annapolis, MD and attended the University of Maryland for undergraduate and medical school. During these educational years, mission trips to Romania, Kenya and Honduras developed in her a love for international medicine and travel. Warm weather and a great family medicine program lured Sharon down to North Carolina for residency at UNC-Chapel Hill. She met her husband, Logan, an OB/GYN, during their intern year and they married later in residency. After residency, Sharon completed a fellowship year at UNC in maternal-child health with cesarean section training. Board certified in family medicine, she has a special interest in taking care of the entire family and she especially looks forward to providing obstetric services for her patients at CFP. The Lechners were drawn to Western NC because of its beautiful mountains and strong sense of community. Outside of medicine, Sharon enjoys running, practicing yoga, growing in her church, eating good food with friends, and laughing with her husband.
