Personal Biography

Evangelia (Lia) Gravari was born in Thessaloniki, Greece. She moved to USA in 1996 to join her husband in Minneapolis where he completed his PhD in chemical engineering. They lived in Minneapolis for 6 years before moving away and enjoyed visiting Duluth in the winters and Stillwater in the spring. Since then, they have been blessed with two vivacious, sweet and strong minded girls: Anna is 13 and enjoys math, dancing and archery, Sophia is 7 and loves art and reading. Lia completed her pediatric residency and neonatal fellowship in Louisville, KY and joined the University of Louisville neonatal group in 2012. Her interests include simulation and programming, education and ECMO. She has developed an ECMO curriculum for the NICU with emphasis on anticoagulation management and fluid overload prevention. She has also spearheaded the ECMO simulation program for the NICU fellows. She trained the transport team members on neonatal resuscitation and served as the NICU transport director. Lia is a strong advocate for team rounding and decision making; she prides herself on building robust relationships with her babies’s families and can frequently be heard on the phone talking to long discharged families and answering their questions. Lia hopes to continue to be challenged while working in the NICU and start building strong relationships with her coworkers. Lia’s hobbies include learning French, playing the piano and gardening which she is not even close to mastering, but still pursuing. She enjoys visiting Greece and swimming in the beautiful turquoise Mediterranean Sea.
