Lindsay actually began her healthcare career at the Mountrail County Health Center in 1997 as a nursing assistant in the Bethel Home, later transitioning to the hospital. She received her BSN-RN degree, with a concentration in Healthcare Management, from Minot State University in 2005. She worked for one year in Bismarck at St. Alexius on the telemetry floor. In 2006 she transferred to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN to work in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at St. Mary’s Hospital. She continued her nursing career at the Mayo Clinic until the spring of 2013, all the while taking classes through the University of North Dakota for her Master’s of Science in Nursing and Family Nurse Practitioner. She graduated from this Program in May of 2013, after spending clinic hours in a family practice clinic at Health East in Woodbury, MN. She most recently has been working in Cardiology as a Family Nurse Practitioner for Mayo Clinic at St. Mary’s Hospital.

“Chris and I are excited to move back home to raise our children and be closer to family,” says Lindsay. “I am thrilled to return to MCHC where it all started, working with a great team of many people I grew up with. I am looking forward to working with all ages in the clinic. I love the experiences Mayo provided me, but raising children in good ole’ North Dakota just can’t be beat. One of my favorite quotes that I try to remember as a provider is, ‘You treat a disease, you win and you lose. You treat a person; I guarantee you, you’ll win, no matter what the outcome’” (Patch Adams).
