Lindsay Olivarez

Chair Lawyer-Turned-Stay at Home Mom

Why did you become involved in the organization?

I previously volunteered for one of Candelen’s programs and experienced first-hand how our programs touch the lives of kids. Now as a professional and a mom of two young kids, I am able to contribute to Candelen’s mission of creating and improving opportunities for young children to learn and grow.

What motivates you?

I am motivated by the ability to help others. I chose my career as initially, a family law litigator and now, a school law attorney, based on the ability to make an impact and help kids by helping their parents in difficult situations and now by helping their schools in a wide array of legal matters.
