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 held a lot of titles including Marine Biologist, Wilderness Instructor, Teacher, Writer, and Mom. I am passionate about the outdoors and am always up for an adventure. Part of the joy of being a mom is to share my passions with my children and provide quality learning experiences. I share more family-friendly adventures on my blog The Freelance Adventurer.
