She is passionate about doing good business through sustainable infrastructure business cases and good governance, as well as contributing to nation-building in South Africa. She enjoys volunteering where she can have a tangible impact, including mentoring young women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), leading and supporting business chambers, and most recently, as the chairwoman of the local residents’ association (a non-profit with over 2,000 members in a community of about 14,000 and an annual turnover of over $2 million USD). Linsey summited Mt. Kilimanjaro in August 2009 with a group of extraordinary women (and some amazing men) and has since used that experience as inspiration for approaching many different challenges…including living through her partner Tim’s terminal cancer.
