Lindsay has been a consultant with VingDirect since 2013, when her mother Tammy Boatright (yes, the VingDirect Founder) intrigued her with the idea of making VingDirect a family business.

Since joining the Ving Team, she has worked closely with family wineries to help them increase their DTC Sales by implementing strategic marketing programs and rethinking their digital presence. Lindsay’s favorite project is VingDirect’s Direct to Consumer Assessment, and she enjoys weekly calls with winery owners across the U.S. to discuss “new and now” industry topics!
