Lindsey joined the WEST team in 2011 as a field technician out of Flagstaff, Arizona and transitioned to a biologist/field coordinator role in 2018. She is relocating to the Golden Valley, Minnesota office. Lindsey received her B.S. in Conservation and Environmental Science from the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee, where her study focused on biological resources, particularly marine ecology.
In her years as a technician with WEST, Lindsey was able to conduct a variety of wildlife surveys across the western U.S., including raptor migration counts, aerial raptor nest surveys, acoustic bat monitoring, and clearance surveys for threatened and endangered species, such as desert tortoise, burrowing owl, and desert kit fox. As a field coordinator, Lindsey’s focus has shifted to report writing and coordinating field staff. Prior to working for WEST, Lindsey worked for the U.S. Forest Service conducting surveys for northern spotted owls and northern goshawks in California, the Intermountain Bird Observatory performing ground-based golden eagle surveys in southern Idaho, and building and maintaining trails for the Squam Lakes Association in New Hampshire.
