Lindsey’s passion for advocating for those treated unfairly stems from her own childhood story of resilience. That passion led her to join Traffick911’s grassroots team of volunteer pioneers in 2010 and ultimately to leave her job in corporate America in 2012 to serve full time. Traffick911’s unique response to trafficking victims, the Voice & Choice Survivor Empowerment Program, was written and implemented by Lindsey in 2017 as a response to what she learned from working with heroes in the anti-trafficking field and building long-lasting relationships with youth who had been trafficked. Lindsey has trained thousands of professionals on sex trafficking across the state of Texas and serves on coalitions and multidisciplinary teams strategizing anti-trafficking policies and serving victims every day. After serving in the anti-trafficking field for a decade, one of her favorite topics to discuss is ‘free people free people’ - the discovery of our own brokenness, shared humanity, and stories as we walk alongside others seeking freedom. Her greatest honor has been journeying beside the brave survivors Traffick911 works with. Their resilience continues to serve as her inspiration for leadership and impact. Lindsey holds a bachelors from Texas A&M University, is TBRI-trained, is certified to assist victims of crime through the Texas Victim Assistance Training Academy and is a Certified Praesidium Guardian.
