Lindsey grew up just outside of Boston and is a recent graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, where she studied psychology and education. She first became interested in working with children and students in high school through her experiences babysitting and working with an afterschool program at an elementary school in Cambridge, MA. In St. Louis, Lindsey spent time in pre-school, elementary, and middle schools through her studies and tutoring programs. She is a product of both public and private schools, and has therefore seen the existing inequalities in the education system first hand and is dedicated to lessening the gap. Outside of the classroom, Lindsey enjoys taking photos, traveling and spending time with her friends. Her desire and passion to work with students grew throughout college and she is excited and determined to give each and every student the educational experience they deserve.
