Lindsay Woodford was born and raised in St. Anthony. She says her parents were always heavily involved with the community, and credits them as the reason she is also heavily involved with several groups.
Lindsay has been a member of Girl Guides of Canada since she was little and is still involved with the group. She volunteers with a Brownie group in St. John’s and participated with her Rangers group in a renovation project for Habitat for Humanity. Lindsay is also involved with Me to We, and has travelled to Ecuador to help communities with infrastructure upgrades.
Lindsay has won several awards based around community service. In 2012 she was named a Winterfest Ambassador, which made her a familiar face in her community and at community events. She was also a member of 774 St. Anthony Lions Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron, where she received a Commanding Officer’s Award and RCMP Cadet of the Year. In June 2014 she graduated the cadet program as a Warrant Officer First Class and Squadron Commander.
Lindsay is completing a Bachelor of Arts degree in French at MUN. After finishing her undergraduate studies, she hopes to go to med school to be a radiologist, with an ultimate goal of travelling to underdeveloped countries to provide healthcare, either with Doctors without Borders or Me to We.
