Lindsey Richardson was born and raised in Arcadia, Ca. Being a California native, she decided to attend the University of Southern California in 2000 for her undergraduate degree. Lindsey holds a bachelor’s degree in Communication from the Annenberg School for Communication. While at USC Lindsey, discovered her love and passion for marketing through internships at Interscope Records and House of Blues. The summer before her senior year she began working for a small chain of bar and restaurants in Southern California. She saw the need to create a Director of Marketing position to oversee the marketing departments for each of the locations. Working full time her senior year in college with the company, she was appointed the Director of Marketing upon graduation and worked to create the foundation and structure for the marketing department to come.
After the success she found at Sharkeez, and from constantly talking to other small business owners who had great ideas, but no time to organize or implement them, Lindsey decided to start Top Down Marketing as a one-stop solution for small business owners marketing needs. This business allowed Lindsey to explore marketing in many industries and helped her to discover her love for fitness. In 2010 she decided to change career paths and begin working for lululemon athetica in San Diego and co-led one of their new store openings in Palm Desert in 2011.
Lindsey began with Fitness Quest 10 in early 2012. Her passion for fitness, wellness and goals of making an impact in society led her to Fitness Quest 10.
