Lisa Sumner Proffitt, PharmD, BCGP, FCSHP
Chief Quality Officer
Dr. Proffitt's family moved to McCloud when she was in eighth grade after her parents purchased the McCloud Drug Store (formerly located where White Mountain Café is today). She graduated from McCloud schools in 1976 and attended College of the Siskiyous before moving to UC Davis.
She followed in her father’s footsteps and earned a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from UC San Francisco. Lisa established and directed a post-graduate pharmacy residency program in geriatrics at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in San Francisco and became a Board Certified Geriatric Pharmacist. She is also a Fellow of the California Society of Health-System Pharmacists.
Lisa and her husband Jim moved back to her home in McCloud in 2014.
Dr. Proffitt always felt like a mountain girl while in “the City” and is thrilled to be back home working at her Clinic. She notes, “You can take the girl out of the mountains, but you can’t take the mountain out of the girl!”
