During her time at CMU, Lindsey took numerous leadership positions including serving on the executive boards of Alpha Kappa Psi, Logistics Management Council and the Club Pom team. Her professional development has included five internships ranging from process redesign to project management with Fortune 500 and large private companies.
Currently, Lindsey is the president and a founding member of Detroit's nonprofit Mariners Inn Young Professional Board. She was a top 50 finalist for Bill Ford's 30 Under 30 Class of 2017, a program that selects company's talent aiming to become more connected to nonprofit organizations.
