Lindsey is currently working on her PhD in Public Health Education at UNC Greensboro. Her research interests include mental illness and maladaptive behaviors in college & professional athletes, as well as barriers to treatment. Lindsey earned her Master of Social Work through a joint program at NC A&T State University and UNC Greensboro. Upon completion, she became clinically licensed while providing outpatient trauma-focused therapy to children and adults. Her undergraduate degree is in Recreation Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Lindsey’s professional experience includes game day administration at The Georgia Dome, and business management for professional athletes at a private, boutique firm in Atlanta, Georgia. Sports have been an integral part of Lindsey’s life, and she feels strongly about the stigma associated with high-level athletes seeking treatment for mental illness; she is devoted to developing training and education for sports administrators and coaches so that their players are identified and treated early. Lindsey loves all sports, but has a special affinity for tailgating during football season as she cheers along her beloved UNC Tar Heels and the Atlanta Falcons. She also enjoys traveling with her Pit Bull puppy, Kenan.
