Hello, I’m Lindsey! Originally from the West Coast, I moved to the Seacoast after college and found a permanent home with my husband, two kids, and dog. I've been a local middle school science teacher for over a decade. In my free time, my family likes to spend a lot of time outdoors and I love writing about all the adventures available on the Seacoast. I am the author of "Seacoast Hikes and Nature Walks - Volume 1" and run my own blog called the Freelance Adventurer. You can find more about both of these on social at @seacoasthikes and @freelanceadventurer.
