Program Manager, Sports and Recreational Safety

“I like working for an organization that has day-in and day-out relevancy; there is always something new to learn and a new way to reach children and their families with life-saving information and resources.”

Lindsay started her career at Safe Kids immediately after receiving her master’s in public health at George Washington University. She started in water safety and the Kids Don’t Float Program before switching over to sports, which is a perfect fit for the avid runner and former college basketball player. Now Lindsay fulfills her passion for fitness and wellness while also helping families stay healthy and injury free.
