  • Dr. Lockhart lives with her husband and two small children in Woodinville, WA. She enjoys spending time with her family outdoors, hiking, kayaking and exploring various parks/beaches around the community. Her favorite part about being a sleep neurologist is that she often gets to establish meaningful relationships with her patients and patients families. She knows that if a child is not sleeping, the whole family is likely not sleeping. She truly believes that obtaining sufficient, good quality sleep is important not only for day to day well-being, but for long-term health

    Dr. Lockhart sees a variety of children with neurological and neurological sleep disorders. She is particularly interested in the diagnosis and management of narcolepsy and other central hypersomnias as well as sleep related disorders and headaches in post-concussive syndrome. In addition, Dr. Lockhart sees children with unusual parasomnias, nocturnal epilepsies, and movement disorders including tics, rhythmic movements of sleep, and restless legs syndrome.
