2019 Headshot.png

Nice to meet you, I'm Lindsay.

Here’s the part where I get to share my passion! :

I get to do something meaningful everyday. I get to make an impact in any moment. I choose to wake up everyday and innovate for a better tomorrow. And you can too! My passion lies with people and the planet we ALL call home. I will fight to protect our basic freedoms and preserve / restore our clean earth.

Let’s start streamlining processes to create a greener future through communication, understanding, and hard work.

 Environmental Activities

Additional Thoughts: I am very passionate about the environment. I do not have much practical experience yet, but I have been teaching myself, living a low waste lifestyle, educating my peers, attending environmentally focused public talks, and mentally engaging myself in issues that matter every day.

Biggest Take-Away: This position gave me a blank canvas. Prior to Summer 2017, Branding Wearhouse hadn't done anything on social media. This allowed me to personally create their brand voice and persona as well as set up a strategy for their marketing. The biggest challenge I faced was awareness. With a newer company, I had to build their social audiences from scratch.
