Not only is Dr. Lily Harris another Raleigh native, she is also a native of Raleigh Children & Adolescents Medicine – she is our first pediatrician who also as a child was a patient in our practice.

Family: My husband is Mike Harris who is a family medicine doctor. We married in 2012, had one daughter Carrie Anne, in 2014. We have one dog, a black lab named Finley. We love spending time in the water (whether it’s the beach or a wading pool in our driveway), hiking, exploring parks and museums.

Hometown: Raleigh

Things you like about Raleigh: all the great opportunities for outdoor adventures, cheering on local sports teams, arts, and music

Favorite Vacation: anywhere with a beach

Previous jobs: camp counselor

Other careers considered before medicine: veterinarian

When first considered becoming a pediatrician: kindergarten

Why pediatrics: I love taking care of children and their families and watching them grow.

Interests, hobbies: running, hiking, spending time with family, cooking, playing the viola

Sports allegiance: NC State by marriage, anyone but UNC by birth

Recent proud achievement: We moved into a new house with a toddler without breaking anything.

How has being a Pediatrician changed since having a child? I feel like I relate much better to the families I take care of - understanding more fully that being a parent is both the best and hardest job ever.
