After a graduating from the College of William & Mary ('00) and then spending two years playing professional soccer, Lindsay enrolled on a NOLS Fall Semester in the Rockies in 2002. After about a week in the wilderness, she knew that working towards a career in outdoor education was her next step. She's been lucky to work for NOLS ever since her semester, starting with an internship in the NOLS Alumni office. She took an Instructor Course in 2004 and has also bounced around various positions at NOLS Southwest, NOLS Custom Education, and NOLS Development. Since 2010, Lindsay has been the director at NOLS Southwest. These days when not at work, she spends most of her time riding mountain bikes and looking for birds while exploring the desert.
