About Lisa Caldwell
Lisa Caldwell, MSN, PMHNP-BC is a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with dual certification in both Family Practice and Psychiatry. In her role as a family nurse practitioner she worked at a mobile homeless clinic providing holistic care to an indigent population that many times presented with mental health complaints. She felt very secure in that role as she had a very experienced psychiatrist who worked as the medical director of that clinic. Given that her commute was 2 hours/day she jumped at the opportunity when she was offered a position at a busy pain management office in Lexington. She enjoyed the challenges that each of those roles offered, especially from a mental health perspective. She worked in that position until circumstances arose that would change the course of her career.
“Mental health and treatment of opioid dependence has always been a “pull for me” as every single day I am given the opportunity to improve a client’s mental health which in turn improves their quality of life. I have always strived to be empathetic to those who are suffering”.
She joined Dr. Hall’s practice in early 2019 providing care for those who suffer from opioid dependence. Over the course of the following year, she completed the requirements needed to obtain her psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner post-master’s certificate which would allow her to see clients with mental illness in the psychiatric practice.
She started in healthcare at the age of 13 volunteering her time as a candy striper and has worked in many different capacities throughout the years and completed her education along the way. She obtained her nursing degree from Midway College and the bachelor and master’s programs were completed through Indiana Wesleyan University. Her last endeavor for the Post-Master’s certificate was completed at Northern Kentucky University. She is happily married to her husband of 19 years and they have one daughter. Her family is growing as she now has 3 grandsons that are the joy of her life. She is excited to have finally arrived at her final destination in healthcare, one that has evolved over the course of her life!
