About Me!

I’m Linds. I hate being called Lindsay, so please, call me Linds! I’m very happily married to my wonderful husband Seth for over 13 years, and we have a 5 year old Great Dane, Venus and a 5 year old siamese cat, Izzy. I’m a proud military wife, and we just moved from San Diego, CA where lived for 5 years (the 2nd time around) to the Twin Cities in Minnesota! I work at Dexcom as a Senior Financial Analyst and I love it.

I’m involved in a lot of things, take opportunities presented to me, and love living life (there’s that TripleL again). I value my family tremendously. I’m a black and white, no gray area kind of girl, and what you see is what you get. There are a lot of things I’m very passionate about (health, food, cooking, gardening, exercise, etc.), as you’ll soon see. I’m always smiling, love laughing, and enjoy travel.

  1. I can’t wait to hear about your African adventures. I will live vicariously through you while my kiddos are still little.

  2. Hey there! This is random but did you attend the DiabetesSisters conference this past weekend? Anyway, stumbled onto your blog last night because I am in search of information about the Paleo diet and Type 1 Diabetes. I got bad reviews from several attendees (although these ladies were much older than I-not sure if that had anything to do with the opinions) this past weekend and apparently a speaker did not recommend the diet at all. So confused! My husband and I are getting into the Crossfit thing (and LOVE it) and he is trying to follow the Paleo but I’m doing it with little steps. Any information you could give or send me in search of would be greatly appreciated. Looking forward to reading your blog!

  3. Thank you so much for telling your story about Lipedema! I was diagnosed this past October and I have been feeling so trapped. I feel the same way about the compression. I do need to do a better job with my nutrition!! Thanks again, Kim Jeffery

  4. Hi!

    I found your blog while doing a search for Lipedema – San Diego. I’m also a military wife and I have so many questions for you. Were you diagnosed in San Diego? Has Tricare helped with any treatments? I’m in the very early stages of my research but suddenly the odd fat deposits, bruises, and pain make sense. Thanks so much for going “public” with your story!


    • Hi Jamie! Ask away 🙂 I was diagnosed in San Diego by Dr. Herbst, through UCSD, although she is now currently in AZ as a professor/researcher. Tricare has helped! I was able to get manual lymph drainage covered, compression fitting/stockings, vascular appts, etc. Let me know what other questions you have! Linds
