Early Career

Originally from Los Angeles, Lindsay began her journalism career as an investigative reporter at the Natural Resources News Service in Washington, D.C., where she developed and disseminated in-depth stories focused on environmental and health-related matters to mainstream media outlets, including The Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, “Dateline,” and “World News Tonight.”

One of her investigations — a story published in the WSJ on the government’s foot-dragging in setting safer regulatory standards for arsenic in drinking water — led to the EPA lowering acceptable arsenic levels from 50 to 10 ppb.

After moving to Boston, Lindsay became a daily reporter and wrote features for The Patriot Ledger in Quincy, Mass. During that time, one of her stories for The Boston Phoenix – an investigation into a possible wrongful conviction – won first prize in the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) Mark of Excellence national awards. The article also received first place nationally for Magazine: Investigation and Analysis from the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC).

The accused man was released from prison a year after the story ran. She has appeared as a panelist on “News Night” (New England Cable News), and as a guest on “Here and Now” (WBUR, Boston’s NPR affiliate).

Lindsay left her journalism roots for a couple of years when an opportunity arose to join one of Boston’s largest PR firms, Regan Communications. While she quickly made an impressive impact with clients, her journalistic background became a conflict of interest.

Lindsay-Taub-Los-Angeles-WriterIn 2006, Lindsay branched out on her own and has been a freelance writer/editor and media consultant ever since.

During her three years in Austin, Texas before relocating back to Los Angeles, Lindsay was on the adjunct faculty at Austin Community College, teaching journalism and mass communication courses.

From 2010-2012, Lindsay worked as a producer/content director for MPH Entertainment, with projects that included Johnny, “Hot Spots with Johnny Jet” on Travel Channel, and “The Mommy Docs” of OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network’s “Deliver Me.”

During that time, she was “the voice” of Cesar Millan (National Geographic’s Dog Whisperer). In a year and a half, she more than tripled Millan’s Twitter followers and increased his Facebook following from 330K to 1.4 million.

Lindsay is proud to have worked pro-bono for select charitable foundations and non-profits, including Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation,  Second Chance at Love Humane Society, The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Washington Humane Society’s Fashion for Paws.
