Dr. Lavender was born and raised near Houston Texas where her family worked for NASA. She then went to the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston for medical school. She came to Utah after interviewing for her residency and falling in love with the mountains. She completed her residency in Pediatrics with the University of Utah at Primary Children's Medical Center. After her residency, she has spent the last few years working for Primary Children's Medical Center in the ER and in the Rapid Treatment Unit. She learned a great deal in the ER but missed those long-term relationships of private practice.

She is looking forward to helping families stay healthy and grow strong at Summit Pediatrics. She is very interested in supporting breastfeeding and has worked with lactation consultants, so she can help new moms and babies start out on the right foot, with great nutrition. She believes strongly in preventative medicine and immunizations, but knows parents have many concerns and is willing to have discussions with families about immunizations. She believes open communication and active listening are important parts of the doctor-patient relationship.

She lives in Heber City with her husband and young son, her golden retriever-poodle mix, and her one-eyed cat. She spends most of her time running after her son, but enjoys reading and many outdoor activities like camping and learning to ski. She is an amateur photographer and loves taking pictures of nature, and has traveled to Yellowstone and even Tanzania, Africa to do so. She enjoys living in the beautiful Heber Valley, with great neighbors in that close small-town community, and looks forward to meeting your family soon.
