Lindsay grew up in upstate New York, a far cry from the western mountains. For as long as she can remember, she has spent her time outside exploring local forests and wild spaces, which eventually led her to pursue a B.S. in Environmental and Forest Biology. Living in the Northwest for almost a decade now, she worked all over Oregon as an environmental educator and naturalist before she returned to school four years ago to obtain her graduate degree and teaching certificate in secondary science education. She has worked in many classroom settings teaching grades K-12 about various subjects including astronomy, ecology, life science/biology, marine biology and environmental science. One of her goals is finding meaningful ways to engage students so that they can share her fascination with the natural landscape. She loves getting kids to ask questions, wonder about the unknown, and be curious about their environment to encourage them to become stewards of the same lands they explored as kids.
When Lindsay's not working, she can usually be found hiking, backpacking, and exploring. She is open to new experiences and loves outdoor sports. When not out in the woods, she likes to work in the garden, cook good food with friends, crochet endless scarves and learn to play new instruments. She is excited about joining the Enterprise community and looking forward to fostering public involvement in the beautiful landscape that surrounds Wallowa County.
