Lindsay aims to meet people where they are at, supporting their individual nutritional needs while working to create an environment in which food feeds both the mind and body. Lindsay has years of experience working with individuals battling eating disorders, those striving for weight loss and weight management, as well as those seeking enhanced athletic performance.
Lindsay’s passion stems from being a collegiate soccer player for Ball State University while battling severe disordered eating her freshman year. Her personal wake-up calls led her to pursue an undergraduate degree in Exercise Science followed by a Master’s Degree in Nutrition. Lindsay has run the Boston Marathon, prioritizes strength training, loves a good hike, enjoys cooking, and happens to be married to Jeff Ford, Skyterra’s Executive Director. She is also mom to one incredible daughter.
Lindsay says: "I love working with the guests at Skyterra because I get to witness transformation on a weekly basis. The guests who come to our program teach me more than any class, seminar or degree. It is truly a special place to work. I also like to think I add a little sense of humor to our nutrition education. If someone asked me to dress up like a carrot every day for work, I would do it!"
