Lindsay Shaffer’s (MBA ’15) education and career have been guided by a passion for wellness, sport, nutrition, and personal development. Lindsay played Lacrosse while studying pre-med as an undergraduate at Notre Dame. After working for IBM, she sought to return to the world of sport, so she came USC where she pursued graduate study and worked two years as a learning specialist with the football team. She then spent three years as an Academic Advisor for Student-Athletes at Stanford. She advised 250 student athletes and designed two undergraduate classes.
Shaffer came to Anderson looking to take the benefit of sport to a wider population beyond elite athletes. She is also making an effort here at Anderson to make healthy food available and accessible to the Anderson community. She is looking to identify a company to bring a truly healthy vending machine to the student lounge.
