Dr. Lyden was born and raised in Wyoming. Following her undergraduate education
at the University of Wyoming, she was a clinical research assistant for
the National Institutes of Health’s stroke team in Bethesda, MD.
Dr. Lyden later attended medical school at the University of Washington
in Seattle, WA, and went on to complete a neurology residency at Rush
University in Chicago, IL. Dr. Lyden is currently completing a vascular
neurology fellowship at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.
From growing up in a rural state, Dr. Lyden has an interest in expanding
access to stroke and general neurological care to rural, under-served
areas. Dr. Lyden likes the idea of using new technology, such as telestroke/teleneurology,
to help achieve this. Dr. Lyden enjoys hiking, skiing, backpacking, running,
cross country mountain biking and skiing, interior design, architecture
and spending time with her Labradane.
