Lindsey Smelser

Service Facilitator

Lindsey grew up as a military child, so she has called many states her home. She lived in Virginia as a child, and also stationed in Virginia Beach when she was in the Navy. She now calls Fort Lee her home where the Navy sent her active duty husband, with her four kids and three dogs.

Lindsey’s passion for helping others started in the Navy, where she served as a surface warfare officer after graduating from the United States Naval Academy. She grew up with the mindset of taking care of people to allow them to be their best from her Marine Corps father. She continued that once she became a Navy spouse. She never wanted other spouses to have to struggle with the system like she did with her children. Both of her older boys suffer from severe ADHD and other behavioral issues, which were only exasperated with their father’s hard deployment schedule. She is excited to work with an amazing organization that helps the community so much.
