We call her the Employee and Community Whisperer. Lindsay’s work focuses on community relations, internal communications and media relations for companies like Kroger, Virginia’s Community Colleges and Chesapeake Bank. By marrying research and strategic thinking, Lindsay helps clients thoughtfully engage audiences and the community while driving business results. Over the years she’s helped define Kroger’s community relations strategy and strengthen the company’s presence through media relations and charitable efforts. In 2016, Lindsay led the team that developed the millennial-focused, anti-drunk driving campaign, Who’s Your Driver, targeted to NASCAR fans in Virginia. Lindsay is on the board of PRSA Richmond, volunteers with FeedMore, teaches as an adjunct professor at the Robertson School of Media and Culture at VCU and lives in Westover Hills with her husband Ryan.
