Lyndsey Crossley is the person behind the cheerful voice answering your calls and emails. As Executive Assistant, she not only works closely with and serves as the primary point of contact to our CEO, Chris Askin, she also attends board and committee meetings and provides administrative oversight by serving as a liaison to our Trustees and Advisory Board members. Lyndsey is responsible for overseeing Community Foundation events and Trustee meetings, providing general office support to our staff members and monitoring/maintaining the Community Foundation’s strategic plan.
Though she spent her childhood in Utah, mining brought her family to Nevada, and she considers it home. Having lived in both rural Nevada and now Reno for over 12 years she is an enthusiast of the diverse charm that the Great Basin has to offer. A 2007 alumna of the University of Nevada, Lyndsey earned her degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology. She is a Wolfpack football fan and a passionate advocate for everything our region has to offer.
Lyndsey enjoys spending her free time taking in the blossoming arts culture of the Biggest Little City. As a former employee of Sierra Arts Foundation, she carries a deep appreciation for the arts and can commonly be found at local galleries, museum openings, and receptions. As a young girl who grew up dancing, she still loves music and makes sure to take full advantage of the extensive concert schedule and line up of local bands playing in venues throughout Reno and Sparks. “People don’t always realize how lucky we are in Reno.”
“I’m honored to be a part of The Community Foundation of Western Nevada, and I very much look forward to helping ensure that Reno continues to thrive.”
