Lindsey Williams

Hello, I’m Lindsey (with an “e” like Anne of Green Gables). A New Englander by birth and upbringing, I left after college and spent 10 years living in Washington, DC before moving back to the Seacoast in 2015 to go back to school and to be closer to family (and the ocean). I’m an environmental policy professional and educator, a City Councilor in Dover, and mom to two kids (8 and 5). My professional work focuses on the science-policy interface, negotiation and consensus building, and collaborative processes particularly as they relate to coastal and environmental matters. My community (and parenting) work overlaps with that and focuses on building strong connections between people and place, bringing multiple perspectives to the table, and trying to ensure there is space for voices that are often left out.
