Dr. Lindsey McWhorter was born and raised in Oklahoma and was the salutatorian from the 2001 class at Yukon High School. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Central Oklahoma. In 2006, she moved to Louisiana and started her nursing career at Terrebonne General Medical Center in Houma, working in the nursery and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. After a few years, Dr. McWhorter was ready to take the next step in her career, which took her out of the field of human medicine and into veterinary medicine. In 2014, she graduated from Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine with a passion for companion animal medicine. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association. Dr. McWhorter has a strong interest in dermatology, but also enjoys general practice because she gets to do a little bit of everything. She loves using her knowledge as a veterinarian and her experience as a registered nurse to help clients give their pets the best life possible.
Dr. McWhorter currently lives in Denham Springs with her husband, David, who is a Louisiana native. They met in college at the University of Central Oklahoma and were married in 2006. Since then, they have acquired quite the menagerie of animals including 8 dogs, 1 cat, 5 snakes, a tarantula, and the occasional foster dog.
Dr. McWhorter’s hobbies include reading, hiking, and listening to showtunes. Most of her spare time is spent in the company of family and friends, which includes going home to Oklahoma to visit her parents and sister as much as possible. She also travels to Boston annually to visit her best friend. When time permits, she and David like to travel and most recently spent some time driving down the Pacific Coast in Washington and Oregon. Their dream travel destination is Scotland and hope to make it there for their fifteenth wedding anniversary in a few years.
