Lindsay Davis has worked with OSU Extension in Clatsop County as the Administrative Office Manager for the last ten years and is a fourth generation Extension volunteer. Born and raised in Grants Pass, Oregon, Lindsay began her career as a marketing merchandise coordinator for Bear Creek Corporation where she helped research new products and coordinate buyers for the Northwest Express division of Harry & David Gifts. When this rural girl decided to move to the big city (Portland), she struck out on her own as an independent advertising and marketing consultant developing and launching national radio advertising campaigns. She also worked with Hillsboro, Oregon-based Soloflex Inc. on the launch of their new Whole Body Vibration Platform before moving to Astoria, in 2007. In 2010, Lindsay joined the OSU family at the Clatsop County Extension office.
Lindsay is always seeking new and innovative ways to help run a 21st century Extension platform full of innovation and relevance. She brings her past experience with advertising, marketing and strategic planning (with a dash of humor) to the table to help build relationships with stakeholders and grow the OSU Extension brand both locally and statewide.
Lindsay was recognized in 2014 as OSUEA’s outstanding Professional Faculty, in 2016 she received the Vice Provost Award for Excellence in Program Support and in 2019 she was a two time recipient of the Directors Coin for Excellence. Recently, Lindsay was selected as the 2021 recipient of the OSU Professional Faculty Excellence Award.
Lindsay was the 2019 President of the Oregon State University Extension Association and was elected to OSU Faculty Senate in 2020 for a three year term. Lindsay is also President-Elect of the Oregon Gamma Chapter of Epsilon Sigma Phi. Lindsay has two boys and she enjoys spending time with family and friends, fishing, camping, hiking, and has had a long time love/hate relationship with the game of golf.
