Get to know Lindsey:

Favorite flavor of ice cream? 
Vanilla with a crumbled Madeleine

What music are you streaming?
It varies from day to day!

Why do you love where you live?
There's so much to love about Detroit! No matter how well you know the city or how long you've lived in Detroit, there's always a hidden gem waiting to be found. 

If you could choose a super power, what would it be? 
The ability to control time so that I could slow down life's most precious moments, and fast forward time for an occasional glimpse into the future. 

Favorite book from childhood?
"The Watsons Go To Birmingham", "The Giver", "Esperanza Rising".

Favorite book? 
Michelle Obama's "Becoming" is a recent favorite. However, I love a good historical fiction book. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's "Half of Yellow Sun" tops the list. 

Dream vacation? 
An extended stay in the Caribbean spending lots of time on the beach, eating local foods, meeting folks, and learning about the history of the islands.
