Lindsey has over twelve 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 boards of Modern STL and Mid Tex Mod. Apart from her Great Loves of historic 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.
