For people who know her well, it should come as no surprise that she’s taking part in this adventure. As a personal trainer, fitness instructor, and employee at fitness tracking company, Fitbit, she’s all about physical challenge.
And for Lindsey, breast cancer hits close to home. Her aunt, grandmother and mother of a friend all had the disease. Watching so many of her immediate family members go through it was baffling, but made her hyper aware of the factors that contribute to increased breast cancer risk outside of genetics. “It’s one of those things you think will never happen to you or someone you love.” She has always been very healthy, and watching close family go through this has taught her that nobody is invincible.
Now she lives in San Francisco and loves working for the fitness tracking company, Fitbit, which makes and sells wireless-enabled wearable devices that measure data such as the number of steps walked, quality of sleep and other personal metrics.
