Lindsey Knapton grew up in southern New Hampshire, before making the move to Spring, Texas, a suburb of Houston, and graduating Magna Cum Laude from Klein Oak High School. Upon graduation she moved to central Texas to attend Southwestern University where she earned a degree in political science and theatre. Her time at Southwestern was enriched through her participation in the university’s Paideia program, time spent teaching English with both the Williamson County Literacy Council and Georgetown ISD Migrant Services, and the various environmental campaigns she assisted to organize.
After graduating from Southwestern in 2010, Lindsey joined the United States Peace Corps and served various capacities in rural Namibia. She primarily worked as an English teacher, but also organized the educational programming for a national youth leadership camp, ran the school library, and through various grants and fundraising started a school cinema. Upon returning to the United States in December 2012, Lindsey worked as a Research Analyst for the Texas Senate Research Center during the 83rd Legislative Session. In July 2013, Lindsey joined Edwards Law. She worked as the firms lead legal assistant and was instrumental in helping the firm win numerous cases. In 2015, she left to go to law school at the University of Colorado School of Law. She will no doubt be an excellent attorney one day.
