Lindsay McNeely grew up in north Knoxville and is a Powell High School alumna.
After graduating college, she taught middle school language arts and math for nine years, and then had a stirring toward full-time ministry.
It was during Lindsay's first interview with Emerald Youth Foundation in 2016 when she knew God had a plan much bigger than she imagined. Lindsay loves the work she does with Emerald Youth, the amazing people she meets each day, and the children served. During her time here, she's learned so much about love, service and leadership.
Lindsay and her husband reside in north Knoxville with their two dogs. When she's not serving children at Emerald Youth, she loves to bake, binge watch Netflix, and cheer on her Green Bay Packers during football season.
