As Summer Camp Director & School Programs Educator, Lindsay plans and implements camp programs full of fun, campfires, animals, hikes, and songs in her favorite season, summer! Outside the summer season Lindsay continues to explore the farm with students as a School Programs Educator. 

Lindsay’s teaching experience started while earning her Bachelor of Arts in Business & Organization Management from Maryville College. She spent her summers, and some time after college at a residential program in East Tennessee where she taught canoeing, outdoor living skills, high ropes courses, and environmental education lessons. She then moved to Maine to continue learning and teaching ecology based school programs, now in a coastal setting. Wanting to understand more about funding, budgeting, and planning programs Lindsay worked as a program assistant on climate change and marine science grants in Boston. When Lindsay met a Vermont farmer, a magical blend of romance and the clarion call of life in Vermont lured her to the Green Mountain State to work in the Children’s Farmyard. While she no longer works in the farmyard, Lindsay holds a special place in her heart for all the farmyard animals. Lindsay loves baking biscuits, visiting her native Tennessee (Go Vols!), petting her cats, and is always trying to perfect her marshmallow roasting skills.
