Lindsey Fransen

Lindsey is responsible for working with individual utility partners to ensure that the implementation process and ongoing program are seamless and successful. Lindsey’s experience in the water sector began in graduate school, where she studied international water policy and interned with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). She spent several years working on water conservation with the CPUC before moving on to the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission to work on local adaptation to climate change. Lindsey joins WaterSmart after a sabbatical of sorts, during which she rode her bicycle across Asia and studied the impacts of climate change on water resources in the communities she biked through. Lindsey holds a BA in Earth & Environmental Sciences from Wesleyan University and an MS from the Energy & Resources Group at UC Berkeley. When not thinking about how to solve water resource problems, Lindsey can be found on her bike, in the mountains, or on the soccer field.
