Lindsay graduated from the University of Utah’s Master of Physician Assistant Studies program in 2013. Prior to pursuing a career as a physician assistant (PA), she worked as a registered nurse (RN) at Huntsman Cancer Institute and Hospital. This is where her passion to serve the oncology patient population first began and nurtured her desire to further her education to become a healthcare provider. During her PA training, she took a liking to surgical specialties and women’s health. After graduation, Monarch Women’s Cancer Center seemed like the perfect hybrid of the two and has practiced there for the last nine years. She is now excited to join Dr. Karen Zempolich and bring a new sub-specialty to Granger Medical Clinic, practicing at Granger Gynecology Oncology – Murray Women’s Health.
Lindsay works hand-in-hand with Dr. Zempolich and their team to ensure that the highest quality care, with an emphasis on compassion, is provided to each patient. She is involved in all facets of the practice; she first assists Dr. Zempolich in the operating room on a variety of procedures including open abdominal surgeries, hysterectomies, and tumor debulking as well as minimally invasive and robotic surgeries. She also manages hospitalizations, inpatient care, and on-call needs. She sees patients in the clinic for preoperative consultations, post-operative follow-up appointments, and ongoing follow-up surveillance visits. She plays a vital role in coordinating multidisciplinary referrals as each phase requires coordination of care and attention to detail.
Lindsay is passionate about being an advocate for her patients and lives by the motto “be the provider you would choose for you and your loved ones”. She takes great pride in listening carefully to each patient’s concerns and explaining their gynecologic oncology care in a way that they fully understand. Her goal at the end of each patient encounter is that they have felt heard and well taken care of.
For Lindsay, each patient is unique, and it is a privilege to care for these remarkable women.
