Lindsay Boyer joined the Research and Evaluation team as a clinical research coordinator in Fall 2022. She is excited to begin her career in research working projects geared towards supporting the lives of young children and their families.

During her undergraduate career, Lindsay developed an interest in policy and education, which led her to Washington, DC, to teach. She spent three years as a pre-kindergarten teacher, where she utilized a social-emotional curriculum to work with children and their families.

She later received her master’s degree in Education Policy at the University of Pennsylvania. Her research focused on early intervention, early childhood educators’ mental health, and supporting foster and kinship caregivers. During this time, she interned with Research for Action, where she collaborated on a quantitative preschool curriculum study.
