About

Hi, I’m Lindsay

Here are a few things you should know about me….

  • I love to travel and am always planning/dreaming about my next trip
  • I love to be outdoors hiking, kayaking, sailing, skiing, camping, breathing in the fresh air and taking in the views
  • Natural. Hot. Springs. Need I say more?
  • I’m not a big sports fan, other than Carolina Basketball. It’s in my DNA. Go Heels!
  • People intrigue me. Networking and collaborating is fun!
  • I’m a Leo (sun) – Scorpio (moon). You gotta love me.  Let’s go to the deep core of it all.
  • Dance breaks in the kitchen, in the car, and everywhere on the planet are necessary things
  • I love cheese. Especially French brie. And a good charcuterie board.
  • I have a bit of a potty mouth. Workin’ on it.
  • I used to be a gymnast, and I believe that learning how to fall safely is one of the first things we should all learn in life. Also – how to get back up and try again, no matter how long it takes.
  • I LOVE KIDS. I love their thoughts, creations, questions, and insights. Elementary age, Middle School age, High Schoolers – all of them!
  • Ask me about what I am learning. I am always taking classes that interest and challenge me.
  • I am a bit of a rooted, grounded, open-hearted Sacred Rebel. I don’t fit into manicured boxes and believe it all belongs when it’s rooted in Love – for the Earth, its landscapes and creatures and humans
  • We ARE spiritual beings having human experiences in earthly bodies
  • I love everything about Motherhood, and often use childbirth metaphors
  • I am child-like, because I believe JOY and Enthusiasm are universal languages and very, very contagious
  • Practical jokes are all good. Bring on the light hearted fun.
  • I believe in magic, and have had MANY magical, miraculous experiences that render me in awe and wonder
  • I know beyond a shadow of a doubt, that I am on this earth to Love and Serve
  • Coffee. Two cups.
