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 14 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.
Lyndsey is a passionate advocate for everything our region has to offer and enjoys spending her free time taking in the blossoming arts and 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.
Lyndsey’s love of dance in her youth has translated to a love of music and she 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.”
