Lyndsey is a Chilhowie, Virginia native and is excited to be back to the place she calls home.

While in Tuscaloosa, Lyndsey worked as a student professional at WVUA-TV where she served as a fill-in anchor, reporter, and producer. She was huddled under the WVUA anchor desk on April 27, 2011 as the E-F4 tornado tore through Tuscaloosa. She was privileged to tell the stories of loss, hope, and recovery of the people of Tuscaloosa.
