She transitioned into supportive housing contract management in SWCS’ Housing Resource Center where she managed a large portfolio of local, state and federal awards. Lindsay was elected to the Michigan Association of Evaluation Board as a member at large in 2016 and served consecutive terms as Chair of the Conference Committee beginning in 2018 and spanning through 2021.
