Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, Lindsay Ricks graduated from Collegiate School and went on to study Public Relations and Business at Brigham Young University. She spent time as a missionary for the LDS church serving a mission in Santiago, Chile for 18-months. After completing her church mission and school, she moved to Washington, D.C. and worked in event planning. While living there, she met her sweetheart, Dan Ricks, and they were married a few years later. They now reside in Oakton, Virginia where they have three little boys, and Lindsay stays busy juggling the demands of motherhood and working with the Lansing Foundation to help make a difference.
