Biography

Lindsay was born in Los Angeles and moved to Oregon at a young age. She grew up in Portland and studied Biology and Spanish at Oregon State University in Corvallis. While there, she developed a strong interest in science and medicine and ended up spending three months in Quito, Ecuador, rotating though hospitals and clinics and learning Spanish. The trip also solidified an already-strong desire to travel, and she spent an extra month exploring Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.

Despite an inkling that medicine might remain in her future, Lindsay joined Teach for America after undergrad and moved back to LA to teach 8th-grade science at an underserved middle school in Watts. Her time there remains one of the most impactful periods of her life, and she is still served by the lessons that the experience (and her students) taught her. She does, however, miss the three-month summers, which she spent backpacking through Central America and exploring other hobbies/travel.

An interest in medicine and a desire to work with underserved communities in a different role brought Lindsay back to Portland where she attended medical school at OHSU. There, she was able to continue traveling and spent several weeks at a hospital in Tanzania and another month practicing Spanish and studying community views on Type 2 diabetes in Mexico.

Lindsay was drawn to family medicine for the dynamic and longitudinal patient relationships and the focus on wellness and prevention. She is particularly interested in women’s health, childhood obesity/nutrition and international medicine. Portland and the fantastic family medicine department at OHSU kept her here, and she is excited to dive into residency and continue to explore the great northwest.
