Lindsy Branson is originally from Southeast Missouri. She met her husband in college and they have been married for 14 years. She worked as a Microbiologist in St.Louis for 5 years before their family became an Air Force family.

She understands the struggle that a lot of spouses have when they have to leave a career behind. Which is why she loves volunteering with the Spouses Club, she enjoys getting to support our local community and it fulfills the sense of independence that working outside the home once gave her. Being a member of the Spouses Club has also allowed her a chance to network with people she might not have ever met, which has led to having friends stationed all over the world. She is a total Golden Girls nut, She is also a Science Geek and she loves a good dad joke. They have been an Active Duty Air Force Family for 9 years. They have three children who are currently in school in Yukon (GO Millers). This is their second time living in the OKC area and they absolutely love it.
