Laurie LeMauviel, DO grew up in Asheville and graduated from Asheville High. She was a journalist before entering medicine, and received an offer to work for Associated Press in Detroit the same day she was accepted into Medical School. This is her third year as a Clinical Assistant Professor for UNC School of Medicine Depertment of Internal Medicine. She is passionate about all of internal medicine, but, true to her osteopathic roots, she is also interested in integrative and functional medicine as they pertain to common internal medicine problems. She is also interested in dermatology.
Dr. LeMauviel's colorful medical career in the U.S. Public Health Service, in which she attained the rank of Lt. Colonel, found her practicing emergency medicine on an island off Alaska, as well as in Navajoland in New Mexico. Adventures included smelling whale breath from a kayak, catching a king salmon, learning to make huckleberry wine in Alaska, sampling prarie dog, mutton pizza, and attending church in a hogan (traditional dwelling) in Navajoland.
Answering the call home to be closer to family, brought her back to Asheville to hospitalist practice in 1998 at Mission. She practiced in several venues - Madison County, the VA, and her own practice - searching for the best way to blend medicine with parenting her two daughters.
When not living and breathing medicine, she enjoys gardening (especially tomatoes, Chinese vegetables, basils and flowers), traveling internationally with ehr girls for fun or mission trips, the arts, cooking, skiing, and coastal adventures. Dr. LeMauviel has been with Carolina Internal Medicine since 2007.
