What the nominator said:

“Lindsay is self-motivated, goal-oriented and does an excellent job in all facets of her work. She has tremendous integrity, honesty, and sincerity and gives 100 percent to every effort, including her work on the board of directors for the Next Generation North of the Delaware Community Foundation, the Serviam Girls Academy, and the Junior League of Wilmington, through which she recently received the Emily Dickinson Award.”

Social media platform you can’t live without:

Facebook

Biggest break:

“Realizing that I needed to make a career change, my hope was that Public Allies Delaware would help me explore a new career path in the nonprofit sector while learning new applicable skills. However, it transformed my view of leadership, challenged me to engage in a grassroots community revitalization project through an asset based approach, and connected me with a wonderful network of people committed to making a difference in Delaware.”

Two words that best describe you:

Genuine and persistent.

Work/life balance technique you recommend:

“Schedule time for fun outside of work, but pursue a career that enables you to develop your passions, skills and ideas with a culture that aligns with your values.”

Your advice for the next generation:

“Life isn’t fair, but we can strive to make it as close to fair as possible.”

In one sentence, define success:

“Success is making a positive difference and inspiring others to do
the same.”
