Lindsay Sloan is Vice President of Operations at Higher Ground Education. She began her career with Teach For America’s regional recruitment team in Washington, D.C. and was later promoted to roles in the New York national office. In her nine years at Teach for America, she worked on both the recruitment and human assets teams.
