Dr. Lindgren graduated from The University of Texas at Austin in Austin, Texas with a BS in Neurobiology and a certificate in business foundations. In college, she was heavily involved with serving the community both as the vice president of a service organization and as a volunteer leader at a nearby hospital. She was also a campus tutor of chemistry, biology, finance, and accounting. She then moved to Lubbock, Texas to pursue her MD/MBA at TTUHSC School of Medicine and Rawls College of Business. During that time, she worked at the University Writing Center to help healthcare students and faculty revise writing including research papers, personal statements, and CVs. She also spent two years on the admissions committee and interviewed applicants for medical school, providing feedback to the school. Throughout her time as a medical student, she also mentored pre-medical and other medical students for medical school and residency applications. She then matched to Baylor College of Medicine’s anesthesiology residency program in Houston, Texas.
Dr. Lindgren was incredible! She helped improve my self-confidence and helped me present myself in a way that would reflect well on an admissions committee. In the process, I was able to reflect better on my personal experiences and really dig deep into what I learned from each of them. I feel very prepared for my upcoming interviews!
