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.
