2017 Fellow

Lindsay has only lived in four cities in her life, and each has greatly shaped her.  She was born and raised in Birmingham, AL, where she completed a Bachelor of Arts in Foreign Language and Literature and International Studies.  She then moved to Pharr, TX, where she taught 7th grade Texas History with Teach for America.  Upon completing her commitment with TFA, Lindsay relocated to Waco, TX where she completed a dual MDiv/MSW from Baylor University in 2014.  She spent 6 years in Waco (pre-"Fixer-Upper") and through both her time in school and in her professional life was able to engage in ABCD through congregational social work, working with the Main Street Program, and then as shelter and housing coordinator for a domestic violence shelter.  Last year, Lindsay and her husband relocated to East Texas and works with the East Texas Aging and Disability Resource Center on a variety of programs.  Although she is currently working primarily in client services, her heart and vision is still for ABCD and community organizing work and looks forward to continue to engage in her new community.
