On all of her projects, Lindsay’s first question is, “How can this research inform real change?” She holds this question in all stages of project and evaluation, from proposals, planning, and data collection, through analysis and results communication. Lindsay specializes in the criminal legal system, and in designing and implementing data collection methods appropriate for vulnerable subjects such as sexually exploited youth, and youth impacted by the legal system.
Lindsay joined Wilder Research in 2015 as a volunteer with a staff group focused on policing. She earned her J.D. from the University of St. Thomas and her B.A. from Carleton College. She serves on the board of the Minnesota Second Chance Coalition. Her and her family’s love of the outdoors have taken them up Mt. Adams, through the Boundary Waters, and along 800 miles of the Camino de Santiago (with Lindsay carrying their 1 year old). She’d love to hear about your favorite hike or paddle.
