Lindsey hails from New England and a long line of chefs. Following in her father's footsteps, she found herself in the restaurant industry at a very young age. Always mesmerized by the thoughtful creations flowing out of the New England kitchens she worked in, she decided to pursue her passion for the culinary arts. She immersed herself in culinary courses and the bustling food scene. In an effort to keep her passion for travel alive, she set off into the yachting industry roughly 12 years ago. From the Eastern Seaboard of the US to France, Spain, Italy, Turkey, Croatia, the Caribbean, and many stops in between, she not only honed her skills in several different styles of cuisine but developed an immense passion for yachting. Between jobs as a Chef onboard, she took the opportunity to gain as much knowledge as possible on maintaining, maneuvering, navigating, and helming a range of yachts. She completed three Atlantic crossings and a multitude of yacht deliveries throughout the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, and up the US Eastern Seaboard. She even competed in sailing races whenever the opportunity lent itself. She earned her USCG Captains license and soon after, purchased a sailing yacht of her own. When she wasn’t crewing aboard luxury yachts she was traversing the Caribbean in her sailing monohull. She eventually found her way into Fleet Management and has worked to develop many successful charter programs. While managing, she completed her Charter Yacht Brokers Course and has now made her way over to brokering. She is thrilled to help curate Charter Yacht Vacations in some of the most stunning locations around the globe, many of which hold great significance for her. Seeing her clients come home from Charter with gorgeous memories and experiences to last a lifetime is something she finds incredibly rewarding!
