More about Lindsey
Her education in Natural Medicine began at an early age with a love of nature, medicinal plants, and food. Study of the body continued in high school and college through numerous sports, both individual and team. A torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in her knee, was followed by 3 reconstructive surgeries through age 19. The experience spurred her to pursue a career in alternative medicine at Bastyr University and prompted her move to Seattle from the Buffalo, NY area.
Lindsey is dedicated to community and is a co-owner of Glow. Lindsey’s other passions include cooking and functional food, cross training, traveling, gardening, reading, writing, art, and spending time with her son and husband in their Seattle home.
