Social media is ubiquitous in girls’ lives. Too often, parents are not sure what parenting technique to use, opting for a to much or too little approach, or brush social media off entirely- demonizing it or tells their daughters it doesn’t matter. These misunderstandings can cause friction between parents and daughters. Informing parents can only benefit them!
Lindsey Turnbull founder of Miss Heard Media, wants to live on a planet with teen girls who feel understood and appreciated, coffee that comes from the kitchen tap, and an endless supply of macaroni and cheese.
As a girl advocate with close to ten years experience, Lindsey has helped hundreds of girls embrace their most confident, competent selves through the Young Women Leaders Program at the University of Central Florida and MissHeard Media. Using her background in history and leadership development, Lindsey uses her research, writing, and presentation skills to create media and workshop experiences for teen girls that Huffington Post said “chang[es] the global narrative for women.” Her ultimate goal is to help teen girls shape the world by encouraging empathy and global savvy.
She Graduated from Stony Brook University Medical Center witha BS in Health Science, minor in Emergency and Disaster Management and concentration in Women Studies. She holds a Certificate from MIT in Leadership in Times of Disruption and A Certificate in The Science of Parenting from UC SanDiego.She worked as a critical care paramedic for years until a permanent injury on the job caused her to change her life direction with work but not without first teaching her of the importance of Independence, Leadership and Personal Identity which are the foundations of her work.
She is a mom to two little girls and has spent nearly a decade working with women of all ages to help shed unhealthy beliefs and breakdown stereotypes surrounding pregnancy, motherhood, body image, self esteem, parenting, women in leadership and much more.
She Believes each of her daughters was sent to her to remind her of a piece of herselfshe haslost or not loved during her journey. She lives with her husband and girls on a little river in Southbury CT.She and her girls can be found listening and singingto “Fight Song” in the car on the way to school
She believes that the change we need to see in this world begins with Raising a Powerful Girl and her lifes work is to help you understand what this means and how you navigate this journey so that we can Raise a Generation of Strong, Independent Women Leaders with high personal integrity and morals that will push for the changes we so desperately need.
