It is our great pleasure to announce our newest member of the board: Lindsey Nobles!
Lindsey has worked and had a very real and profound impact across the for-profit, non-profit, and ministry sectors. Throughout her distinguished career, she has worked in almost every sector of business: Event Planning and Management, Marketing, Merchandising, Communications, Development and Operations.
Lindsey began her career at Birmingham-based Books a Million. She then joined Thomas Nelson Publishers as Director of Corporate Communications where she developed strategic relationships and partnerships and increased brand awareness through traditional and social media. After nearly four years at Thomas Nelson and a one year stint at Project 7 Inc., she made the jump to the non-profit sector as the Director of Speakers and Strategic Partnerships for Food for the Hungry and later at Feed the Children.
Most recently, Lindsey was the strategic force in the creation and growth of IF:Gathering, an organization that equips over 1 million women around the world. She developed vision from concept to successful execution, built sustainable multiple revenue streams to support the organization from fundraising to merchandising to sponsorships, and shaped the values, team content and practices of the organization.
A natural includer and connector and social justice fighter, Lindsey lives in Austin, Texas, and serves on the boards of Be The Bridge and The Freedom Story.
How she got involved with The Freedom Story
Lindsey had heard about our organization from being involved in the nonprofit world and recently joined us on a vision trip to learn more about our work on the ground and the systemic issues leading to trafficking. As a board member, she hopes to continue to learn about trafficking and how she and others can help bring awareness and attention to this pervasive problem in our world today.
When asked what she wishes others knew about social justice work, Lindsey said:
“One of the things I’ve learned as I’ve traveled around the world looking at social justice issues is that there are no simple solutions and that most poverty issues seem to be interconnected. And so one thing I love about the work of The Freedom Story is that while they are focused on trafficking prevention work, they know the importance of partnering with other organizations who work in different areas whether it be trafficking rescue and restoration work or even job creation and food security. Non-profits are stronger together and no one can do it all alone.”
Welcome to The Freedom Story, Lindsey! We are thrilled to have your insight, experience, and expertise as we continue to work towards bringing an end to trafficking, by creating stronger networks and more resilient communities!
