Before coming to IFBA, she worked for six years with UnityPoint, Allen Hospital and several years with AEA 267, River Hills School.

Iowa Food Bank Association works closely with Iowa Food & Family Project to connect Iowans with the farmers producing their food. She has a Bachelor of Science in Public Service & Administration in Agriculture from Iowa State University. Her agricultural experience will be an asset to IFBA. As a member of Young Professionals in Agriculture and Iowa Society of Association Executives, Lindsey hopes to share the message of Iowa's food banks through many channels.
