From conducting new employee orientation to maintaining employee records to administering our broad range of benefits, Lindsey is an HR professional in the truest sense, helping to ensure a healthy, happy, and safe workplace for all PWSA employees from day one.
What made you decide to join PWSA?
My professional career history is largely in manufacturing and robotics, so working for a publicly owned and operated water utility is a new challenge.
I was excited to join an organization like PWSA – one so focused on and dedicated to serving our region’s communities – because I myself wanted to be part of that service-oriented mission. I’m really excited to get down to business, challenge myself to grow into this role and in my career, and be a trusted point of contact for all our employees.
Can you tell us a bit more about your professional and educational history?
I graduated from Robert Morris University with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration and Management and then began my HR career with a refractory manufacturer. I then held roles for more than five years with food and beverage and hospitality organizations before accepting my most recent pre-PWSA role as People Operations Specialist for a transportation, logistics, and supply chain robotics technology company.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I have an almost 5-year-old Goldendoodle named Kobe, who loves walking on the Panhandle Trail – an abandoned railroad corridor that’s been converted to a bicycle and walking trail – or going to the dog park. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends, playing bingo, and trying new restaurants with my fiancé.
What’s the weirdest fact you know?
It’s impossible for one to hum while holding his or her nose. The reason? When you hum, you’re actually exhaling, but with both your nose and mouth closed no air can escape.
