Research Interests:

Lindsey’s research focuses on the well-being and flourishing of complex medical patients, particularly patients with progressive or incurable diseases. By interweaving theological ethics and medical ethics, Lindsey is developing a theological account of quality of life care.

Road to the Moody School:

Lindsey graduated from Ouachita Baptist University in 2014 with a B.A. in biblical studies and then pursued her Th.M. at Dallas Theological Seminary, graduating in 2022. While at DTS, her research interests shifted from biblical studies to quality of life care because of her own progressive, incurable rare disease. Outside of her research, Lindsey enjoys volunteering with rare disease advocacy organizations and spending time with her husband and their dog.
