LynleyPresident Lynley Fow
psonspresident@gmail.com

Graduating from the University of Delaware and working on a very busy, large scale teaching hospital gave me the skills to take my passion for patient care on the road as a traveling nurse where I practiced in a variety of hospitals on both coasts and a few places in between. After having a life-changing experience at Yale New Haven Hospital, I was encouraged to pursue my master’s degree and become an oncology nurse practitioner. As luck would have it, I was accepted to the University of Washington’s Acute Care Nurse Practitioner program with a focus in oncology nursing. After passing my boards, I spent eleven years as an oncology certified nurse practitioner in a wonderful practice at EvergreenHealth, dedicated to patient care.
