Salutations and well-wishes! My name is Lindsay Wilcox, and I’m up to a whole host of things:
- By day, I’m a Care Manager with CICOA Aging & In-Home Solutions, developing in-home services care plans for aging and/or disabled folks who need the assistance to remain in their own homes and communities instead of institutions.
- In my spare time, you’ll be lucky to pin me down! I’m working on everything from developing a program for ministry to seniors in Catholic parishes, writing books, taking on DIY tasks in my triplex, or training in martial arts or roller derby!
- In general, God only knows where you’ll find me, but if you want to increase your chances, odds are I’m somewhere around Fountain Square.
I’ve taken a somewhat circuitous route to some of these endeavors, but I like to think I’ve accomplished some pretty cool things along the way:
- In 2008, I completed a dual bachelor’s degree from Boston College in Theology and Philosophy. They liked me so much they even gave me a Presidential Scholarship and paid my way through. I’ll forever be indebted to Thomas J. Rooney, Jr.’s family! Instead of paying them back, I’m paying it forward by sponsoring a Haitian university student’s tuition through my parish!
- In 2010, I earned a master’s degree in Theology from the University of Notre Dame after participating in the Echo program, which included a two-year apprenticeship in parish ministry and a full scholarship. I’ll never call myself a “Domer” (see previous point for the reason!), but I am very grateful for the connections I made in that program.
- From 2010-2012, I worked for the State of Indiana Department of Workforce Development determining who was eligible for unemployment benefits and who was not. They were challenging years for me, but I learned a lot about myself and my goals from them.
I’m nose deep in the path of discovering and determining who I am and who I will be. Your opinion is welcome, but–be advised–is not determining! I appreciate your taking the time to check out my site!
