LindsayPicCroppedLindsay Dye, Administrator
Lindsay Dye brings to her position a background of varied experience in planning, organizational and management skills. She has worked in marketing and advertising, hospitality, management training, human resources, conference planning and private criminal Investigation. As the mother of a partially home-schooled teenager, she’s uniquely qualified to juggle the diverse and sometimes challenging aspects of the administration of the Hakomi Institute of California. Lindsay came to Santa Cruz 28 years ago to recover from a bicycle accident, and never left, willingly falling victim to the lull of the ocean and the solace of the mountains there. She has subsequently enjoyed being nourished and nurtured by both the area and the wonderful friends she's made, and considers Santa Cruz the perfect "village" in which to raise her son. Lindsay can be reached at 415-839-6788.  Email: Lindsay@HakomiCA.org
