Lyn Goldring, RN, BN, CEDRN | Chief Nursing Officer 

Lyn Goldring obtained the majority of her nursing education in Manchester, England. She graduated from the Salford School of Nursing as a Registered General Nurse then went on to obtain her Bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Dundee. In 1987, she bravely boarded a plane to Los Angeles to start a new adventure. Lyn obtained her RN and spent many years working in acute medical settings gaining insights and skills in her exploration of caring for others. She found she was always holistically curious about the patients she cared for, not just the disease or body part that needed help, but the “whole person.” She yearned to understand the “why” of disease processes and found her calling moving her from the critical care setting to women’s health, wellness, and prevention. She spent time working as a violence prevention specialist where she spent time in inner city shelters helping young moms who were survivors of domestic violence and their children.  She felt rewarded over and over by the women she witnessed taking their power back which has continued to be a theme in her life.

In 2005, Lyn was hired by Monte Nido Treatment Center as the nurse manager for the then six-bed residential program. At Monte Nido, Lyn embarked upon a wonderful 12-year career under the mentorship of Carolyn Costin. While at Monte Nido, Lyn built a nationally-recognized nursing program that embodied her values of caring for women’s minds, bodies, and souls. This delivery of care system built a foundation to keep clients medically safe while refeeding their bodies and provided comfort for the uncomfortable physical experiences while in treatment. Lyn and her team also provided vital education regarding pharmacology and general wellness and prevention strategies that encouraged clients to change their relationship with their own bodies as well as their relationship with food. Lyn loves the privilege she has of witnessing people gain their power back over their eating disorder.

In 2016, Lyn proudly became a CEDRN (Certified Eating Disorder Registered Nurse) through iaedp. She went on to become a nationally recognized public speaker on the topic of nursing and the medical care of eating disorders.

Lyn joins the Gaudiani Clinic team where she is excited to be part of an expert outpatient medical team specializing in the care of people with eating disorders. After being part of a treatment network offering higher levels of care, Lyn is happy to be providing opportunities for health and well-being at the outpatient level of care to both prevent people from needing a higher level of care and also to provide more holistic, multi-disciplinary care following treatment. Lyn is excited to be providing support, education, and care in the only way she knows how: with tea in hand and a relentless open heart.

Lyn will be relocating to the Denver area from southern California and looks forward to meeting the wonderful patients at the Gaudiani Clinic.
