Lynsey began her professional broadcasting career with KHQA in August of 2017.

Growing up in the Tri-State Area, she was actively involved in many activities. Lynsey started dance at the young age of two. She also played an instrument, held many different leadership roles, played high school softball, was a member of 4-H and was Miss Adams County in 2014.

Lynsey is a graduate of Quincy Senior High School, John Wood Community College and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. During her time at college, she was the host of a school produced TV show. Also, Lynsey has traveled across the Midwest calling races for short and dirt track racing.

She is excited to be one of the few local reporters working in Quincy who is actually from the area. After recently moving back to the Tri-States, Lynsey is also looking forward to finding different organizations to become involved with.
