Lindsey Stiner is a COTA who left a career as a news anchor, reporter and producer to pursue a career working with disabled children.

She was born and raised in Amarillo, Texas, where she still gets told she has a familiar face. After working in television news in both Maine and Amarillo, Texas, she jumped into a career in Occupational Therapy when her son was diagnosed with ocular albinism with nystagmus shortly after being born.

In 2018, Lindsey graduated from Amarillo College’s OTA program, where she was named “Outstanding Major.” Her passion is working with children of all ages and abilities, and she has a strong desire to make a profound, positive impact on the lives of Panhandle families.

Lindsey has a special interest in sensory integration, which sparked her interest to serve on the board of SLAM Zone Sensory Gym. She is also a past board member of Arrow Child & Family Ministries and the Early Head Start Policy Council.

“I am in a constant state of learning and growing to be the best OT practitioner that I can be for my families,” she said.

In her free time, you will find Lindsey on the sidelines of the soccer field, cheering for her five-year-old son. From going to the lake to grabbing a snow-cone and chasing their dog around, Lindsey and her son enjoy all types of outdoor activities.
