She joined DNAinfo New York after graduating from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, where she focused on urban reporting. While in school, Lindsay spent months investigating dilapidated apartment buildings in the Bronx and the role of court-appointed lawyers in foreclosure cases, which earned her a cover story at the Riverdale Press.

Before transitioning into journalism, Lindsay spent several years teaching middle school English in Washington Heights and the Bronx as a New York City Teaching Fellow. She is especially interested in reporting on education and youth issues.
