Dr. Marie Becker Lindsey, PhD, APRN, CNP
Dr. Marie Becker Lindsey, PhD, APRN, CNP is a 1966 graduate of Hinsdale Central High School. As a nurse practitioner for over 30 years, Dr. Lindsey’s clinical experience has encompassed a broad clinical spectrum. She was a member of the negotiating team whose work resulted in the eventual recognition of advanced practice registered nurses in the Illinois Nurse Practice Act in 1998 and has been pivotal in every subsequent revision of that statute. In 2002, Dr. Lindsey was overwhelmingly elected the first president of the newly formed Illinois Society for Advanced Practice Nursing, the only professional organization in Illinois geared exclusively for all specialties of advanced practice registered nurses. Dr. Lindsey lives with her husband, Charles, in New Lenox, Illinois. Her son, Gary, and granddaughter, Georgia May, live in Austin, Texas.
