Lindsey Turnbull wants to live on a planet with teen girls who feel understood and appreciated, coffee that comes from the kitchen tap, and an endless supply of macaroni and cheese.
As a girl advocate with over a decade of experience, Lindsey has helped hundreds of girls embrace their most confident, competent selves through the Young Women Leaders Program at the University of Central Florida and MissHeard Media. Using her background in history and leadership development, Lindsey uses her research, writing, and presentation skills to create media and workshop experiences for teen girls that Huffington Post said chang[es] the global narrative for women. Her ultimate goal is to help teen girls shape the world by encouraging empathy and global savvy.
Lindsey holds a Master in Public History from the University of Central Florida, as well as bachelor degrees in History and Anthropology. She was named a 2018 30 Under 30′ Trailblazing Alum.
When she not leading workshops or writing for a teen-aged audience, Lindsey enjoys intriguing YA or detective novels, admiring famous women from history, or blogging about heavy metal.
