Lyndsay is a PhD candidate at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. She graduated from Calvin University with a Bachelor’s Degree in the Science of Nursing and worked as an ICU nurse prior to starting her PhD. As an ICU RN, she cared for many patients and families facing critical illness who experienced unmet palliative care needs during their disease trajectory and decided to pursue a PhD in Nursing to address these gaps. Her dissertation research focuses on examining the unmet palliative care needs of community-dwelling older adults with heart failure and physical frailty. Her research is currently supported by a Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Predoctoral Fellowship through the National Institute of Nursing Research.
