Lindsay leads a team responsible for creating innovative content and experiences for EAB’s two largest technology memberships: the Student Success Collaborative and Adult Learner Recruitment. Her team has created 100+ pieces of digital and printed content—infographics, white papers, toolkits, case studies, webpages, and more—to help college leaders enroll and retain more students, while growing the EAB brand.
Previously, Lindsay led the Student Success Collaborative’s research into academic advising, creating three studies (including The Advising Office of the Future) to help college administrators elevate the advising profession on their campuses. Lindsay also spearheaded advisor training, connecting frontline staff with the skills they need to better serve changing student populations.
Prior to joining EAB, Lindsay was Humanities Department Chair at a Title I charter school in northeast Baltimore. She was a member of the Teach For America corps in Baltimore and taught 7th and 8th grade language arts.
Lindsay holds a Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Literature and Communication Studies from the University of Michigan and a Master of Science in Education from Johns Hopkins University. Her master thesis explored methods for engaging high-ability underachievers in low-income classrooms.
