PGY 1

Medical School: Creighton University
College: Loyola University-Chicago
Hometown: Carol Stream, Illinois

Lindsay was born and raised in Carol Stream, Illinois, a suburb an hour from downtown Chicago. Due to her love of the city, she attended Loyola University Chicago for college, where she majored in Biology. While at Loyola, she volunteered as a tutor at a children's hospital, which made her realize that pediatrics was her calling. After graduation, she moved to Omaha, Nebraska to pursue her medical degree at Creighton University School of Medicine. During medical school, she developed interests in medical education, immunization advocacy, and mentorship. Outside of medicine, Lindsay enjoys spending time with her husband, family, and friends, playing with her mini cockapoo (Finn), exploring new restaurants, and reading psychological thrillers. She also loves going to concerts and live shows, so she is very excited to now live in “Music City.” Lindsay is honored to be a part of the Vanderbilt Pediatrics family and can't wait to experience all that Nashville has to offer.
