TEP: Tell us about yourself!
Lindsey: My name is Lindsey Waite and I’ve worn a few hats during my time at The Emily Program. I started as a Program Coordinator, and I currently hold the position of Outpatient Therapist and Director of Trauma Services. I live in Olympia, Washington, and work from the South Sound site. I have been with TEP for just over four years.
TEP: Why did you choose to work for The Emily Program?
Lindsey: I’ve joked that my path to TEP was nothing more than destiny! After several years in private practice, I was seeking something new and team-oriented. I had already established relationships with TEP staff and received positive feedback from our community. The fateful day arrived while I was feeling especially exhausted by insurance contracts and billing issues. I called up South Sound’s site director, Stacy Schilter-Pisano, and asked if there might be a place for me at TEP (thank goodness there was). After a day of shadowing South Sound’s team, I knew it was where I belonged. I’m so grateful to be a member of this incredible team and know that it was the best career decision I could have made.
