Philosophy of Care

My passion for nursing is founded by the desire to provide each of my patients and families with the necessary tools to promote health and manage complex conditions. Watching my patients and families grow, heal and triumph through challenging times energizes and drives my advanced nursing practice into what it is today; and how I may continue to care for those who cross my path in the future.


Lindsay started her career at Boston Children's Hospital as a clinical assistant in the Cardiology unit in 2007. She quickly recognized her love for pediatrics and upon graduation as valedictorian from her nursing school, she accepted an RN position at Boston Children's Heart Center. She then decided to pursue a higher degree as a family nurse practitioner at Boston College. Upon graduation from this strenuous program she accepted a position in General Surgery as an outpatient advanced practice nurse. She has a wealth of knowledge having been involved in multiple specialities throughout the institution. In addition she has served as a role model and mentor to many new staff. She accepted a position in the Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia program in early 2020 with the desire to focus her expertise.
