Searle is a board-certified family nurse practitioner who specializes in women's health, assisting patients from puberty through menopause and beyond. She provides routine gynecologic care, prenatal and postpartum care, and performs a number of procedures including IUD insertion and removal, ultrasounds and endometrial biopsies.

"We are pleased to welcome Lavonne to the obstetrics and gynecology care team," said Mark Freeborn, MD, chief medical officer at EvergreenHealth Medical Group. "Throughout her career as a health care provider, she's demonstrated the compassionate, high-quality care that reflects EvergreenHealth's values-based approach to care and service for our patients. Her expertise and experience will be of great value to our community."

Searle believes that her role as a care provider is to empower women to become advocates for their health care. To accomplish this, her approach to care is centered around fostering a trusting partnership with each of her patients that is rooted in transparent communication, evidence-based care recommendations and shared-decision making.

A Washington native, Searle graduated from the Everett Community College Nursing Program and went on to receive her master's degree in nursing from Gonzaga University. Prior to joining EvergreenHealth, she served as a nurse practitioner for Planned Parenthood Great Northwest, Hawai'i, Alaska, Indiana, Kentucky and before that, as a nurse practitioner for the Community Health Center of Snohomish County.

When she isn't caring for patients, Searle enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, reading, gardening and walking.
