Lindsay grew up in Tuscaloosa, AL, spending her childhood water skiing in the lakes and rivers nearby. Camping on sandbars along the Black Warrior River, and searching for fossils and rocks for hours were favorite past-times. Lindsay has always loved the outdoors, and wanted to teach others how to protect the environment. She earned her Bachelor's Degree in Education from the University of Alabama (2007) and went on to work as a Naturalist for the Alabama Museum of Natural History there on campus. It was there that she began to understand the rich bio diversity of Alabama's forests and waterways and how important it is to keep it protected. In 2009, Lindsay became a teacher at McDowell Environmental Center where she fell in love with the canyons and waterfalls of the Bankhead National Forest. She also realized that many children (and adults alike) lacked the experience of being in nature and didn't know much about the flora and fauna of their area. So, Lindsay began hiking the trails every weekend, talking to everyone she met about how to protect the forest and keep it clean. In 2019, she became a Leave No Trace Educator and began to volunteer with Wild South. Lindsay joined the team at Wild Alabama in the summer of 2021 as the Stewardship Assistant.
