Lindsay has been raising money for independent schools since 2010 because she believes that the solution to many of today’s challenges begins with education. Lindsay grew up in the Philadelphia area and graduated from Lehigh University with a double degree in Journalism and Public Relations. She knew she wanted a job that would serve others and began her career as a fundraiser for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. In 2010 she took a position as the Associate Director of Development for Vermont Academy, a New England Boarding School, where she discovered her passion for raising money to support the work of independent schools.
At Vermont Academy she saw first-hand the transformation that can occur when students are met where they are at by faculty who have the resources to do so. She was inspired by not only the academic growth in these students, but their personal growth and the confidence that ensued. As hard as it was to leave Vermont Academy, she and her husband decided to follow their love for the outdoors and move to Boulder in 2014. Lindsay proudly served as the Associate Director of Development and Director of Alumni Relations at the Dawson School for two years where she helped grow the fundraising and outreach programs. She is now honored to lead the development program at Hillside, where she can blend her non-profit and independent school background to support the work the faculty do to nurture Hillside students to become confident and capable learners.
In her free time Lindsay enjoys discovering new hiking and camping spots, and being as active as possible with her husband, friends, and two dogs. She also likes to practice what she preaches and donates her money and time to her alma mater and nonprofits she feels passionate about.
