Lindsey has dedicated her career to shaping progressive organizations and campaigns that improve people’s lives, particularly women and children. Lindsey was Chief Communications and Brand Officer of Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit focused on ending childhood hunger in America through its groundbreaking No Kid Hungry campaign. Under her leadership, The No Kid Hungry campaign won PR Week’s prestigious Non-Profit Campaign of the Year in 2015, increased participation in federal meal programs by several millions year over year, and helped elevate childhood hunger from an issue few cared about to being a top 10 issue the general public identified as “solvable.”
Before focusing on domestic hunger eradication, Lindsey spent nearly 20 years in health care communications, policy, and government relations working for some of the nation's most respected commercial and non-profit organizations. These include Georgetown University, Brookings, Avalere Health, and Porter Novelli. Throughout her career, Lindsey has shaped major national campaigns such as the groundbreaking ‘truth’ campaign that curbed youth smoking by 30% in one year; increased patient safety through reduced medical errors; defended vaccine safety; educated the public on the Medicare prescription drug benefit; and secured bipartisan Congressional funding for improving health care safety and quality.
Lindsey is a Board director at World Central Kitchen and on the Next Generation Council of the Shoah Foundation. Proud wife, mom, and mentor to new mothers, Lindsey is a book-a-week reader, and fanatical about ice hockey and Thanksgiving.
