Let’s get to know Lindsey a bit better! Check out her Q&A Below!
What is something nobody knows about you?
I have a pretty random list (ask me about it sometime), but one of them is that I’m related to Andy Griffith. He was a first cousin to my Grandma.
What was the most favorite trip you’ve ever taken?
That’s a hard call. I would say Iceland, as that’s where my fiancé proposed to me and it was an unforgettable, amazing trip. However I’d have to say my favorite trip was to Australia for a 6-week adventure through Rotary. 4 weeks of the trip was staying with host families, traveling around the top end and east coast of Australia, while learning about the local economies and presenting to their Rotary clubs. The other two weeks were spent as personal travel to the Whitsundays, Melbourne and Sydney. It was a trip of a lifetime and I’m very grateful to work for a company that supports this kind of personal growth through culture and experiences.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
When I was in Australia, I had the opportunity to do aerobatics in an old Soviet Fighter training plane (Yak 52) over Airlie Beach. We were doing barrel rolls and Cuban Eights . We got to over 4G’s and I was on a high from the adrenaline for days!
What’s your favorite movie?
Dumb and Dumber has always been a favorite of mine. It really does get funnier the more you watch it and it fits my love to laugh and goofy personality so well. It also happens to be my fiance’s favorite movie, so we’re incorporating bits and pieces into our wedding this September.
What’s the last book you’ve read?
High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard. He breaks down six habits that high performers all have in common to be more productive and effective. After trying to read similar books, this one had the meat I was looking for – actual tips and tricks vs. the whole book being stories to prove a point.
