Lindsay A Jensen

Graduate Student Profile
Lindsay grew up in Fishers, IN where she was very involved in 4-H in Hamilton County. After completing her 10 years in 4-H, Lindsay became the summer assistant for Purdue Extension-Hamilton County for two summers during her undergraduate career. After graduating from Purdue with a degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management, Lindsay became a manager in the hotel industry. She decided that she missed the education aspect of Extension and hopes to combine that with her love of event planning. Lindsay hopes to pursue a career in Extension Education and enjoys learning about new cultures and how to meet the needs of those individuals through education.
