LINDSEY ROOD-CLIFFORD

SENIOR EVENT PRODUCER

Lindsey joined EPIC in 2007 as an Event Coordinator and currently serves as a Senior Event Producer on major Corporate and Nonprofit accounts as well as a supervisor for the event coordination team.  During a brief "sabbatical in the field" Lindsey worked for the Kansas City CARE Clinic (formerly the Kansas City Free Health Clinic) as the Special Events Manager for the Marketing & Development department, where her primary responsibility was managing the major special fundraising events for the Clinic, including its signature, award-winning annual fundraising event, “The Bloom Party.” With an educational background in and personal love for creative-writing and theatre, she is a strong advocate for EPIC’s core belief that all live events should have a story arc – with a clear beginning, middle and end – in order to achieve a positive emotional connection with the target audience.

In 2015, Lindsey was accepted into the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce's highly regarded Centurions Leadership Program.  In her free time, she serves as a Founding Member and Chairman of the Hope House Young Professionals Board of Directors; is an active member of  Starlight Theatre's Center Stage group; and serves in a volunteer leadership role in the Creative Arts Ministry at Heartland Community Church.  Lindsey resides in Olathe, Kansas with her husband, Chris, and their kids, Megan, Shea and Peyton, along with their two dogs, Annie and Oliver.
