Lindsay works with individuals, teams, associations and companies on building healthy wellness strategies for performance, recovery and improved quality of life.

She is also certified in Effective Communication through Dale Carnegie, and is trained in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) through the University of Massachusetts. Being a high-performance athlete, while completing her education, Lindsay understands the physical and mental demands that come with being at the top. She understands the importance of healthy sleep and has lived through the effects of sleep disturbance and sleep deprivation on her overall restorative quality of sleep. Sleep, or lack of, was a contributing factor in her inability to keep up with training
demands, compete at optimal levels, and recover from injuries quickly. Her experiences in sport are why she is passionate about empowering athletes to become responsible for their sleep hygiene, and her education in sport psychology and sleep allows her to providing individuals with the tools and support they need to rest easy and train hard.
Lindsay is an engaging keynote speaker and leads customized presentations, workshops, training, and consultations.
