Our Executive Director
A native of Massachusetts, Lindsey has 10 years of experience working and advocating for Special Operations and their families in the nonprofit space.
Lindsey has served and supported hundreds of military families, and after working with the Green Beret Foundation as a Program Manager, she stood up the Ft Bragg campus for The Honor Foundation, a transition institute for SOF. She has also spent time in our nation’s Capital, as a HillVets LEAD, advocating, drafting legislation, and speaking nationally on behalf of families of Special Operations. She sits on the board for the American Red Cross of the Sandhills, is a Survivor Advocate on the domestic violence task force for Moore County, North Carolina, and has studied Nonprofit Management, and Psychology at Colby-Sawyer College.
Lindsey now resides outside Ft. Liberty and spends her free time golfing, or chasing after her three rambunctious children.
51 Vets is a nonprofit organization dedicated to connecting veterans from elite military communities with top business professionals.
Our Staff and Mentors facilitate success in the private sector by offering networking opportunities, direct career placement, mentorship, and additional resources tailored to our members' superior skills and abilities.
Our members primarily come from Special Units within the U.S. Military, such as the Navy Seals, U.S. Army Special Forces (Green Berets), Marine Special Operations (MARSOC), and Naval, Air Force, and Army Aviation Units.
In essence, these Veterans seek to embark upon their next challenge beyond the uniform.
