Lindsay was very creative and artistic, she had a passion and eye for photography. In 2011, she decided to pursue this talent by attending the University of Hartford School of Arts. She graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a focus in Photography. During that time, she had various art/photography pieces featured in different exhibitions.
