From her experience in medicine to politics, Dr. Ada M. Fisher has excelled at breaking barriers.
Born in Durham, North Carolina and now residing in Salisbury, Dr. Fisher earned her first degree in biology at the University of North Carolina. She went on to earn her medical degree from the University of Wisconsin at Madison and her Master’s Degree in Public Health from the Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health. After countless contributions to the medical field as a physician, medical director of Amoco Oil Company, and Service Line Director for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Occupational Health Services, Dr. Fisher decided to get involved politics.
Dr. Fisher has always been deeply involved with the Republican Party, including her work on behalf of the George W. Bush, John McCain, Mitt Romney, and Donald J. Trump campaigns. In addition, she has served as the RNC’s Committeewoman for North Carolina the last nine years.
