Lindy is the founder and executive director of Cancer Legal Care, a non-profit organization providing free legal care to Minnesotans affected by cancer.

For her work in founding Cancer Legal Care, Lindy has been honored by the Women’s Health Leadership Trust, Minnesota Lawyer magazine, Angel Foundation, and the judges of Minnesota’s 10th Judicial District.
Lindy is an adjunct faculty member of the University of Minnesota School of Law, and serves on the board of directors of GiveMN , the steering committee of the Health Care Legal Partnership, and is past steering committee member of the Minnesota Cancer Alliance.
A frequent author and speaker on the intersection of cancer and law, Lindy received her BA from the University of California, Irvine, and her Juris Doctorate from the University of Pacific, McGeorge School of Law.
