Lindsay Walz, M.Ed. - Full Bio
Lindsay Walz is a courageous heart who challenges professionals to push pause on the standard operating procedures that lead to a culture of stress and overwork. Her passion for cultivating resilience as a personal and professional practice comes from the wisdom she has gained over ten years of human development work and a personal journey through PTSD and trauma following the 2007 collapse of the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis.

It’s mission is to co-create experiences with young people by offering them a safe space, built with the intention to heal and empower — through expressive arts, community building & leadership development.
