Lydia has been working in healthcare since 2000 when she became a licensed midwife. She enjoyed helping new families throughout the childbearing year. Wanting to expand her scope of practice, she decided to return to school, attending Pacific Lutheran University's Nurse Practitioner program. She became Board Certified in Family Practice in 2007 and has since worked in a variety of areas, including Family Practice, Emergency Care and Walk-in Clinic services.
As a partner in patient care, Lydia values an open, respectful and nonjudgmental relationship and looks forward to working with the patients at Advanced Women's Health to achieve their health goals. She believes in the connection of mind, body and spirit, understands the importance of a healthy lifestyle to promote well-being and considers it a privilege to be a part of that process for her patients.
Outside of work, Lydia enjoys the challenge of running half marathons and discovering healthy recipes to cook with her children.
