Lindsey Mask, Ladies America
Lindsey Mask recently joined G2 Global Solutions, a multi-certified provider of comprehensive solutions to federal, state, and private sectors and the nation’s intelligence community as a communications specialist to support the Office of Security and Strategic Information (OSSI) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). With over three and a half years with HHS, Lindsey previously served as a spokesperson and communications expert for the Office of the Director of Program Support Center (PSC) and Federal Occupational Health (FOH) overseeing all internal and external communications, which reaches an audience of 1.8 million federal employees.
Prior to joining FOH and PSC, Lindsey was CEO of her own boutique public relations, media, and marketing firm, which was quickly acquired by a larger Texas-based firm, affording her the opportunity to serve as the fulltime CEO and Executive Director of the professional women’s nonprofit she founded in 2006, Ladies America/ Ladies International Foundation. The women’s organization maintains a national presence and has begun female entrepreneurship support efforts in Nepal.
Lindsey has over 15 years’ experience in political and government communication. She served six years in the U.S. House of Representatives as a communications director and spokesperson for two of the nation’s top leaders and with the U.S. Committee on Education and the Workforce. She has run several large-scale media and media booking operations, including two national political conventions and began her career as a TV news anchor and reporter for an ABC-affiliate in upper Michigan.
Lindsey has been featured on the cover of Washington Life Magazine as a top thought leader under 40 and has been included in previous and subsequent annual issues. She was also featured on the cover of Austin Monthly Magazine in year’s past. She recently served as a speaker at TEDx Women and last year was awarded the “Stand Up” award by Mrs. Veteran’s America for her support of our nation’s female veterans. She has been honored as a top female entrepreneur by Women in Technology and was nominated for an upcoming L’Oreal Women’s Award and the Lady Godiva Program, celebrating inspirational women around the world. She served on the founding Board of the 2012 G8 Young Leaders Summit in Washington, D.C.; was a co-founder of DC Entrepreneurship Week; and served on the Emeritus Board of the Women Under Forty Political Action Committee (WUFPAC), aimed at helping women under 40 secure seats in federal office. She keynotes and lectures regularly on social good, health, media, public relations, women’s empowerment, branding, networking, and communications. Believing in health, innovation, the positive impact of women, and social change, Lindsey has been on supportive mission trips to such countries as Haiti and is active in refugee support initiatives through her church.
