Lindsay is a Midwest Gal now defrosting here in the Southwest. She and her family were relocated to Scottsdale in 2014 due to her Husband’s job, and they are loving desert life! Lindsay and her Husband have two children, a 6 year old boy and a 3 year old girl. On the weekends, you can find their family camping, hiking, or at Costco buying all the things. Prior to becoming a stay at home Mom, Lindsay worked in the SaaS industry implementing software. She enjoys traveling, photography, awful 90's pop, and roaming REI for unnecessary outdoor gear.
