Lindsay McHugh is a Family Nurse Practitioner at MCMC Family Medicine specializing
in pediatrics. She has a background in general family medicine, but her
passion for pediatrics drew her to focus primarily on this age group.
Her goal as a primary care provider is to be safe, evidence-based, approachable,
collaborative and understanding. She wants patients and their families
to feel heard and be active participants in their health care. She enjoys
providing care for infants in each developmental stage, as well as discussing
preventative health for teenagers and young adults. She is establishing
with patients 21 and younger but will also see patients of any age for
urgent needs, as available.
Lindsay completed her undergraduate studies at Gonzaga University in Spokane,
Washington. After graduating she worked with international students, immigrants
and refugees before attending graduate school. She attended Seattle University
to complete her Master of Science in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner
(FNP), graduating at the top of her class. She was named a Paul Ambrose
Scholar for her work in preventative medicine and chronic disease management,
and was also awarded the National Health Corps Scholarship. While in Seattle,
she continued her work with immigrants and refugees, and volunteered with
a Native American tribe North of Seattle working with their diabetes prevention
and chronic disease management program.
Lindsay was born and raised in Washington state and is glad to be working
in her community. In her free time, she enjoys running, hiking, snowshoeing,
cross country skiing, backpacking and exploring all the Gorge has to offer
with her husband and their two dogs.
