As a born and raised Calgarian, Lindsay has a profound appreciation for the natural surroundings both our Province and County have to offer. In search of widening her perspective and experience, Lindsay attended Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario where she earned a degree in Political Studies. Her passion for politics and environmental issues led her to explore interests in writing and debate through her involvement in the University’s newspaper and other publications.
Shortly after completing her degree, Lindsay moved to Ottawa to pursue an internship with Elizabeth May’s M.P. Office. Her experience working on Parliament Hill introduced her to the inner-workings of government and the decision-making process. Through this work experience, she decided to pursue a Master’s degree in Public Policy, which brought her back to Calgary. As a Master’s student, Lindsay focused on energy and environment issues affecting Canada and Alberta. Specifically, she worked on bringing awareness to water policy issues, an area of work she continues today.
Fueling Lindsay’s interest in environmental issues and policy is her constant desire to be close to nature and protect Canada’s natural surroundings. Lindsay can often be found in the Rocky Mountains hiking in the summer, cross-country skiing in the winter, and travel planning in the off-season.
