Lindsey Tarr is a Servant Leader. In stewardship of people and planet she seeks, first and directly, to serve them. The Way of this work is in learning the Ways of humility, continuous development, and sustainability. In practice, it is an, often, immediate response to a call for help; it is serving locally within a multi-year, grassroots coalition to protect environmental and public health; it is participating in local government including serving on a Homelessness Task Force.
Social justice and environmental protection have been her lifelong focus reflected in her role within a residential solar installer as the youngest sales team leader to hold the position in the Southern California region. Her team redirected millions of middle-class dollars and millions of pounds of CO2 in fossil fuel costs by driving direct change to clean energy.
Previous to this she served as an Americorps Fire Team Leader in which she lead a team of corps members and hundreds of volunteers in service projects, including more than a handful of disaster responses, across twelve southern states and more than twenty nonprofit and government organizations.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Management (BS) from Babson College and an Associate’s degree from Mesa College. While putting herself through college she earned a California Contractors License to run her own painting company and she began to learn the ways of leadership, canvassing and fundraising for change as she led a team to help drive through the landmark piece of legislation, the Million Solar Roofs bill.
She has not trained in martial arts prior to the fall semester 2018 but has logged over 300 hours since that time training and co-teaching the self-defense driven techniques and strategy of Akijujitsu, Arnis, Taekwondo, Hapkido, Kickboxing, and Boxing under her trainer Master Heidi Sarmiento-Wilson. Her progress is an example to others that self-defense education is a right of all people and with access to it, it is possible for anyone to gain the mindset and skills of personal protection.
