As a native Rhode Islander Lindsay’s progression into making her livelihood on the water was a natural one. Starting out at a very young age, part of yacht club sailing teams, moving to sailing instructor and then youth and adult Sailing Program Director positions, she has not veered from this path. She continued on, obtaining her U.S.C.G license and into the yachting industry full time. Even while holding Mates positions aboard a number of private motor yachts, traveling to beautiful locations all over the East Coast, Bahamas and Caribbean Islands she still yearned for something more creatively fulfilling.
By attending the Institute Of Culinary Education as well as Natural Gourmet Institute, NYC and Cambridge School of Culinary Pastry Arts in Boston, she has taken her previous recreational passion for food, creativity, and caring for people to a new level. Lindsay has eagerly taken on the challenge of creating healthy yet homemade style meals spanning the range from Raw-Vegan, Gluten Free to classic French cuisine. Having worked as a private estate chef and for the top boutique catering company in Newport, Lindsay continues to add to her culinary repertoire.
If she’s not in the galley you can find Lindsay researching, developing new recipes or at the gym challenging her fitness levels. She hopes to open your pallet up to new flavours and food.
