Hi, I’m Lindsay Addington! I am a Marine Corps veteran, a mother, a wife, a student, and a Corporate Training professional. I wholeheartedly believe in Women Veterans; their strength, capability and poise is unlike any other.
While in the Marine Corps, I was assigned as a Geospatial Intelligence Analyst, which landed me at First Intelligence Battalion making maps for I Marine Corps Expeditionary Force. I started looking for new opportunities outside of the Topography platoon. I ended up finding myself in Training and Operations for my Battalion. There, I began my volunteer journey as a Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Advocate. All of the victims I had the opportunity to support throughout their healing journey were women and I saw a strength and dignity I had not seen anywhere else. In that role, I fell in love with public speaking, training and advocacy. This led to my journey of pursuing Training & Development as a career path.
It was not without struggle that I found my way into the civilian workforce. At one point, I applied for daycare assistance through the Foundation for Women Warriors. Although things took a turn for the better and I ended up not needing the assistance, I saw what an important impact this foundation has on the community of women veterans.
I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Human Resources Management and I am currently a student in a Master’s program for Organizational Leadership & will graduate in Fall 2023. I have a passion for leadership training, coaching and mentoring, and making a positive impact on those around me. I currently mentor other veterans as they transition to the civilian workforce.
While I do spend a lot of my time working, I always find time to create art, ride horses, lift weights, and watch UFC. I’m also a shopaholic – you can never have too many shoes!Back To People
