Lindsay Wieczorek, PhD, RN-BC
Lindsay Wieczorek has always been fascinated with the brain and mental health. Before becoming a nurse, Lindsay earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from Arizona State University and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from Washington University in St. Louis. Over the course of 15 years spent researching how molecular changes and environmental influences interact to modulate stress and learning, her work was published in 12 peer-reviewed journals and she was awarded a F31 grant from the National Institute of Mental Health.
Lindsay’s curiosity and desire to apply this research in a clinical setting led her to shift her career path to nursing, and in 2017 she received a bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Lindsay subsequently worked at UNC Medical Center in the adolescent, child and eating-disorder inpatient units and became board certified in psychiatric-mental health nursing by the American Nurses Association. Additionally, she taught undergraduate students as a Clinical Instructor at UNC.
Lindsay joined Triangle Wellness and Recovery so that she can assist clients beyond the inpatient-unit setting by helping them manage their symptoms in their natural environment and build more productive, purposeful lives.
