Lindsey has over eleven years of experience in historic preservation as both a professional and advocate. Her career choice was a natural outcome of her love for the red bricks and Victorian parks of Saint Louis, where she is from. She holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from Washington University in St. Louis and a master’s degree in preservation studies from the Tulane School of Architecture. She has worked for the nonprofit Landmarks Association of St. Louis; as a preservation consultant working in Missouri, Illinois, and Louisiana; and served on the board of Modern STL. She is now president of Mid Tex Mod, which advocates for Central Texas’ mid-century design heritage. Apart from her Great Loves of preservation and the St. Louis Cardinals, Lindsey is passionate about rescue dogs that behave better than her own, and finding a cure for spinal muscular atrophy.
