Meet Mrs. Draft

REGISTERED NURSE PRACTITIONER Lindsey, APRN

Lindsey Draft is a proud Ocala, Florida native having moved to the nature coast after marrying her husband Justin in 2015. She has worked throughout central Florida and the Tampa Bay area during her career. She began as a Licensed Practical Nurse caring for chronically ill children in their homes. After graduating from College of Central Florida as a Registered Nurse, she began her surgical journey in the operating room at the former Munroe Regional Medical Center.

After moving away from Ocala, she began working for Shriners Hospital for Children helping with complex orthopedic deformity and reconstructive surgery. During this time, she completed her bachelor’s in nursing from Columbus State University. Lindsey thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her patients and their long journey through surgery and beyond. It was one of the most rewarding times in her career.

Lindsey then decided to peruse higher education by obtaining her Master of Science in nursing thus becoming a Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. She also worked as charge nurse and clinical coordinator of surgical services at Advent Health Zephyrhills while managing school and family until the completion of her degree.

In her personal time, Lindsey loves spending time with her two little boys, husband and golden retriever, Dudley. She is involved in school activities and enjoys watching her kids play sports like basketball and flag football. She also likes going to sporting events, concerts and traveling.

Lindsey is delighted to join a wonderful practice and work alongside the best in the field. She is excited to get to know her patients and help them all to feel comfortable before, during and after surgery.
