Olson Center Welcomes New Clinic Manager

The Olson Center for Women’s Health is pleased to welcome Lindsey M. Davis onboard as clinic manager. Previously, Lindsey managed the Nebraska Medicine ENT, Allergy and Audiology clinic.

Davis says she has always wanted to support women’s health and is excited about her new role.

“The Olson Center for Women’s Health encompasses strength, education and support for so many people within our community,” she says. “I knew I wanted to be a part of their extraordinary delivery of care. I am excited to work hard with my team so we can deliver the best patient care possible.”

Mitzi Johnson, who served the Olson Center for over seven years as clinic manager, has taken a new role as ambulatory application manager in the Enterprise Applications Department of Nebraska Medicine. In her new role, Johnson will lead a team of analysts who build, support and configure the One Chart patient care application.

“I have really enjoyed my tenure in the Olson Center,” she says. “I have grown as a leader and healthcare professional because of my leaders: Rick Blum, Dr. Sonja Kinney and Dr. Carl Smith. They have supported, coached and mentored me over the years and I am truly grateful. My team has been a true inspiration as well. I have enjoyed watching them grow over the years, and they have helped me to be more confident, have more fun and uplifted me personally in ways they may never know. I will truly miss them all.”
