Announcement from Wellness Editor Tara Parker-Pope:
In her new role, Lindsey will cover a variety of personal health topics and essential news. She will also develop deeply reported enterprise stories on chronic illness, mental health and navigating the medical system, among other issues.
Lindsey brings both authority and empathy to her work and has a reputation for being a skilled interviewer on sensitive topics. One of her most memorable stories recounted a family’s loss of three children over three days from a rare genetic condition.
For the past seven years, Lindsey has honed her health reporting skills on The Post’s busy General Assignment desk, where she has routinely covered national health news and has been an essential contributor to our coronavirus coverage. She has a keen understanding of service journalism and has regularly written Q&As on the topics that readers are talking about. She has also reported on the opioid crisis, covered the debate over physician-assisted suicide and written about disability issues, including a story about a “Sesame Street” muppet embroiled in a controversy over autism.
Lindsey began her career at The Post as a founding reporter on the Morning Mix team. She was selected for two prominent health reporting fellowships: the 2019 Health Coverage Fellowship in Boston, which focuses on critical health-care issues, and the 2018 Mayo Clinic-Cronkite medical journalism fellowship at Arizona State University and the Arizona Mayo Clinic campuses.
Lindsey was previously a staff reporter at the Dallas Morning News. She has also written for her hometown paper, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and interned at the Guardian U.S.
Lindsey has a master’s degree in digital media and investigative journalism from Columbia University, where she was also a fellow at the Toni Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism, spending 10 months reporting on juveniles in the adult criminal justice system. She graduated from Texas Christian University with a bachelor of science in news-editorial journalism.
When she is not working, Lindsey enjoys photography, watching documentaries and doting on Emmy, her 4-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
She starts her new job on Sept. 6.
