Excited feelings for Mongolia!

I am Lindsay Phillips and I have been a Child Life Specialist at Wolfson Children’s Hospital since 2010. I was born and raised in Ft. Wayne, Indiana and graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Child and Family Studies in 2008. Following that, I began my career at Wolfson’s and throughout the last five years have been humbled by the amazing patients, families and staff members that I have had the fortune of working with.

Throughout this time my passion for children and the Hematology/Oncology population has grown substantially. I am constantly amazed by their strength, determination and ability to love others despite what is going on in their own lives. Shortly after starting at Wolfson’s I had the opportunity to meet Jonathan and his family just before he passed.  I never imagined that brief meeting would develop into the opportunity of a lifetime and give me the chance to travel to Mongolia along with an amazing medical team!

I feel so lucky to be able to attend this trip and cannot wait to experience everything Mongolia has to offer! I have always wanted to travel and have had a desire to complete a mission trip since college. Now, as the trip approaches I am filled with excitement and also slightly nervous! My biggest hope is to make a positive impact on the patients, families and staff that I will be working with while in Mongolia and promote Child Life and all that it can do.
