Lindsey was born in Bakersfield, California. At a young age she and her family moved to Midland, Texas where she grew up. Lindsey graduated from high school in 2012 and initially began her college career at the University of Oklahoma. She chose to major in psychology because she really enjoyed the introductory courses she took in her first year. She was passionate about this subject and wanted to pursue a career path where she could help others. She began to work at research labs in order to gain more experience in the field. She also interned at a human resources agency in order to see what opportunities she could pursue. After exploring many options Lindsey decided she wanted to pursue a career as a counselor.

In 2015 Lindsey moved here to Lubbock in order to finish out her Bachelor's degree at Texas Tech with the goal of attending graduate school. During her time at Texas Tech she added a minor in addictive disorders and recovery studies in order to learn more about the addictions field. She also worked in a research lab that specifically looked at the effects of addiction on the brain.

In her free time Lindsey enjoys spending time with friends and family, meditating, reading, and exercising. She believes self-care is essential and makes it a priority in her life. She also enjoys watching scary movies and she loves dogs. Lindsey's favorite movie is The Shawshank Redemption. She loves this movie because it contains her favorite quote. She believes it is crucial to live life to the fullest and to impact the lives of others. Hardships are inevitable and she believes you can either let these hardships break you or you can rise above the circumstances that try to pull you down. She hopes to give others hope that recovery is possible and life can be a meaningful and beautiful experience if you are open to it.
