Lindsey Myers followed her dreams to become a College and Career Counselor to pursue her passion and talent in working with youth throughout rural Colorado. Helping students discover and realize their career path has been a recurring theme in the many life and educational experiences Lindsey has had since growing up in the small town of Winter Park, Colorado.
Lindsey has a unique understanding of the college recruiting process both as a student-athlete, playing Division II volleyball for University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS) and as a Coach for UCCS while pursuing her post-graduate degree.
As a Fellow at El Pomar Foundation in Colorado Springs, she managed several programs, such as the Student Leadership Council to develop student leaders in 11 different universities throughout Colorado. She also was involved with the Northwest Regional Council comprised of Grand, Routt, Mesa, Moffat, Rio Grande, and Garfield counties and focused funding towards business educational programs, which has evolved into a program now called the Reach Your Peak Pipeline.
Following work in Colorado Springs, Lindsey moved to the Vail Valley where she gained six years of invaluable experience with high school and college students on afterschool programming, internships, career exploration, and college scholarships as a Program Manager with Vail Valley Foundation’s YouthPower365 in Avon, Colorado. Along with this work, she also evaluated all cradle to career programs for success and efficacy within the organization.
Lindsey received her bachelor’s degree from UCCS in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing and a Master’s degree in Public Administration with an emphasis in Nonprofit Management. Her education continued by pursuing a Certificate in Career Development Facilitation from Colorado Mountain College in Edwards, Colorado; and after a year of exciting work, she received a Certificate in College Counseling from the University of California-Los Angeles Extension in 2017.
