She has facilitated church staff and women’s retreats, led continuing education training for clergy, served as a guest speaker for church youth parents on multi-week mental health series, and guest preached at various churches around the topic of mental health and faith. Lindsay currently serves as a board member of Chrysalis Consulting Center, a nonprofit based in New Mexico that serves clergy and clergy families.
