Biography

Lauren Smilde, ARNP, DNP, is a board certified adult-gerontology nurse practitioner who specializes in palliative care. She is passionate about caring for people with serious illness and working to improve their quality of life. “Our patients are so much more than what has brought them into the hospital. It is such a privilege to sit down and get to know who they are and what matters most to them. It is an honor to walk alongside my patients and their loved ones, taking the time to make sure that the care they are receiving makes sense to them. No matter how difficult a situation may be, I want everyone to know that there is always something we can do for you.”

Lauren was born and raised in Seattle but completed her Bachelor of Science in nursing at University of Pennsylvania. As a registered nurse, she has specialized in caring for older adults in the hospital as well as in the home. She earned her Doctorate of Nursing Practice at the University of Washington, where she also completed a graduate certificate in palliative care. In her free time, Lauren enjoys playing ultimate frisbee, taking ballroom dance lessons with her husband, and spending time with her friends and extended family
