Lindy grew up on a farm in southwest Georgia and moved to Athens to attend the University of Georgia. She worked in food service throughout college and became the general manager at a busy restaurant in downtown Athens after graduation. Lindy and her husband, Paul, eloped in 2016 and welcomed their son shortly after. During the pandemic, she became a stay at home mom to her son, William. Lindy used her pandemic time to complete a long time wish, becoming a Georgia Master Gardener Extension Volunteer.
Post pandemic, she decided to only work at places aligned with her personal interests and values and did so by embracing several jobs at once, including going back to food service, working at a local C.S.A. (where she met Katie), and taking on a horticulture position as a gardener. In her free time, she enjoys running and playing tennis, volunteering, exploring new areas with her family, and turning her yard into a woodland garden.
