As a Sauk Prairie native, Lindsey is no stranger to River Arts, Inc. You many have seen her at the River Arts Center in numerous musicals and show choir events over the years as she graduated from Sauk Prairie High School in 2003. Lindsey then attended Viterbo University where she received two Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in Music Theatre and Arts Administration. Other highlights of her past include working at Grand Avenue’s Kid’s Club, The Black Hills Playhouse in South Dakota, Chula Vista Resort in the Fabulous Fifties show, and Viterbo University’s presenting and producing theatre in LaCrosse, WI. For 5 years, Giese traveled the world as the lead singer for Holland America and Celebrity Cruises followed by a year and a half living abroad in Argentina. In October, 2012, she happily returned to Sauk Prairie and began working at River Arts, Inc. as an administrative assistant and in May 2013, she accepted the position as Executive Director.
“It is a dream come true for me to return to the place that allowed me to spread my wings many years ago, and a joy to work with such a wonderful group of volunteers. River Arts, Inc. would not exist without their time and talents” says Giese.
