Lindsey Simonton M. Ed.

Neurodevelopmental Specialist

Lindsey graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder with her bachelor's degree in Integrative Physiology. She remained after graduation to instruct undergraduate laboratory courses in human anatomy, which inspired her to earn a master's degree in Education and Curriculum at the University of Colorado, Denver and finishing with a 4.0 GPA. She also immersed herself in clinical genetic research through the Barbara Davis Center which is a nationally recognized institute for Type One Diabetes Mellitus at Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado.

With nearly ten years of experience in the private sector and public educational systems she brings a vast array of knowledge to the practice.

Since working with youth from pre-school up to high school and beyond, her passion is on counseling and character development with an emphasis on social skills and executive functioning interventions. She has over five years of intense training in Love & Logic and PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports). As an assistant principal she executed developing a brand new middle school model to allow for additional necessary transitions with cross-curricular based projects which allowed students to find purpose and apply their understanding to real world situations. She was also a two time award recipient and recognized as Teacher of the Year (2015) and Administrator of the year (2018) during her tenure with the district. She is currently exploring doctoral programs to continue her love for learning.

When not spending time on her professional growth, she loves to try new recipes with her husband, watch her son excel in football and basketball, and of course take her two fur babies for lots walks. Although she misses her mountain life in Colorado, she has taken a liking to hiking in the Arizona desert and collecting stamps on her passport when traveling the globe.
