As the Project Director for the Minnesota Prevention Resource Center (MPRC), Lindsey is responsible for project oversight and technical assistance services. Contact Lindsey to learn about what MPRC is up to and how you can get involved or access a new feature! She is also available to assist you in finding the answers to your prevention research questions, including summaries and talking points.

Born and raised in the twin cities area, Lindsey enjoys walking (mixed with jogging) the city lakes with her husband and golden retriever, listening to live music, and is always excited to try new local restaurants.
