Lindsey (she/her) holds a Bachelor of Environmental Studies from the University of Manitoba (U of M), where she specialized in Sustainable Development. Her specific interest in sustainable agriculture stems from her connections to the rural municipality of Gimli in the Interlake region, where she spent her summers growing up. Witnessing the immense impacts of climate change and industrial agriculture on the farming community and surrounding ecosystems, Lindsey became passionate about finding sustainable solutions to improve agricultural systems. This led her to pursue a cooperative education placement with the U of M’s Soil Science Department. Here, Lindsey contributed to nutrient stewardship research to build a framework for optimizing fertilizer use to foster sustainability. Lindsey’s interest in environmental policy was sparked during her placement with Environment Canada’s Carbon Market Bureau, where she worked to support the launch of Canada’s Greenhouse Gas Offset Credit System, focusing on Indigenous participation. Outside of her passion for sustainability, Lindsey loves to travel and play volleyball and tennis. She is excited to bring her knowledge and passion to her role with Environmental Leadership Canada to aid in creating long-term resiliency in the agricultural sector.
