Born and raised in Arizona, Lindsay learned the joys of outdoor adventuring early. Exploring the wild deserts, searching for the best swimming holes, finding solace in the deep forests, and sleeping out under expansive star-studded skies, Lindsay also developed a passion for educating and connecting others to their outdoor playgrounds. With a BS Degree in Parks and Recreation Management (with an emphasis in outdoor education) from Northern Arizona University, Lindsay’s work experiences led her to Colorado, Southern California, Oregon and to the towns of Lotus and Coloma here in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Having worked for various nonprofit environmental education organizations, Oregon State Parks, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the American River Conservancy, and the Pacific Wolf Coalition, Lindsay is thrilled to join the Sierra Nevada Conservancy’s team as the National Disaster Program Coordinator.
With a background in environmental education, wildlife conservation, and coalition management and collaboration, Lindsay will use her skills to organize and coordinate implementation of the forest and watershed health pillar of the National Disaster Resilience Competition (NDRC) project. Funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the NDRC project is a Community Development Block Grant awarded to the state of California to fund forest and community resiliency efforts in Tuolumne County.
When not working with Sierra Nevada communities to improve the health of our watersheds and forests, Lindsay can be found out exploring these watersheds and forests by way of whitewater rafting, skiing, cycling, hiking, backpacking, and camping. She can also be found at music gatherings toe-tapping and dancing to some live folk/bluegrass tunes.
