Lindsey has loved being a School Counselor at the Franklin School of Innovation as a founding faculty member and feels fortunate to work with the middle school students and families.
Prior to moving to Asheville, Lindsey earned a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania and worked in the Montgomery County School District in Gaithersburg, Maryland as a therapist. She supported immigrant students and their families to successfully navigate their academic experience and to develop linkages within their new community.
Lindsey has a passion for philanthropic work with children, domestically and internationally. She was a member of the AmeriCorps NCCC, where she served in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and California. She visited Haiti, where she participated in the development and construction of a school. In Kenya, she worked in a children’s’ home and collaborated with a local social worker to minister to the needs of abandoned children.
She welcomes ongoing contact with students and parents and hopes to play an active role in the development of student self-esteem, confidence, and social competencies.
