BeeJay Lindsey


[Development Associate]

BeeJay Lindsey is an educator, farmer, social worker- resource broker, equitable education advocate, creative entrepreneur, and art director. Hurricane Katrina and a full scholarship to play basketball at Tulane University drew her to New Orleans from Atlanta, Georgia in 2006, and she’s held permanent residence ever since.

She is the owner of Master Minds Private Tutoring, a New Orleans-based tutoring service that caters to Children of HUE, divergent thinkers, and members of the LGBTQIA+ Community. She recently founded the HUEMan Development Project. This work and the inspiration for the creation of this nonprofit is rooted in community responsibility, self-actualization, and entrepreneurial equity in New Orleans. BeeJay is particularly interested in assisting children of HUE along their journey of identity exploration, through intergenerational mentorship and community service.
