Dr. Lamothe is a Board-Certified Pediatrician. She graduated from Yale University and The University of Chapel Hill School of Medicine; and completed her residency in Pediatrics at Carolinas Medical Center in 2001. She became more interested in fitness while in medical school and became certified as a personal trainer in 1995 through The American Council on Exercise (ACE). She has therefore been able to combine her love of caring for children medically and her desire to lead families toward a healthy lifestyle. With obesity at an all time high, she wishes to instill a healthy body image in her clients by making exercise and nutrition education fun. She looks forward to another year with the CPAA competition group.
