Lindsay's career in animal welfare began in Bay Area (California) emergency veterinary practice and, prior to moving to Sonoma County to join the Humane Society of Sonoma County, she worked for many years with a large private shelter in southern California. Her background in shelter management includes oversight and practice in neonatal kitten care, foster program management and pursuit of animal abuse and neglect cases alongside veterinarians and animal control. Since her early days with HSSC, Lindsay has focused on furthering progressive initiatives to move rescued animals from the shelter into their new homes as quickly as possible, including streamlining adoption processes and providing support for owned and stray animals through multiple channels. All of these efforts have enabled HSSC to take in more animals facing euthanasia at overcrowded shelters across the Bay Area, Central California and elsewhere. An avid nature lover, Lindsay shares her home with two rescue dogs and a cat.
