Lindsay grew up in the small town of Midland, Michigan, and has always been interested in the dental field. In high school, she co oped at a dental office which spurred her interest in pursuing Dental Hygiene at Ferris State University. In her final year of college, she received news they were having a baby boy. With a little one on the way, she decided to finish her schooling at a later time.

She enjoys ultimate frisbee, hiking, paddle boarding, camping, snowboarding, and staying active in general.
