Lindsey Riddell, Assistant Director of The Office of Mission, Ministry and Service at Misericordia University

She enjoys teaching yoga classes, kayaking and paddle boarding at the lake, and spending time with her dog, Charlie!

Katrina Wallace, Premium Auditor at Berkshire Hathaway GUARD Insurance Companies
Katrina says that "the best way to describe me is an overflowing cup. This energy and enthusiasm came from completing Leadership Northeast in 2018. From that point on my passion for being a servant leader truly took off." When she's not being a servant leader, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, listening to live music, going to the gym, and taking in all of life’s simplest moments.
