Lindsey headshotLindsey Wimmer
is the co-founder and Executive Director of Star Legacy Foundation.  She and her husband, Trent, experienced the full-term stillbirth of their first child, Garrett, in July 2004.  Their goal was for his death to impact stillbirth prevention around the world.

Lindsey holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota and a Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Colorado.  She is certified as a pediatric nurse practitioner, perinatal loss care provider and licensed as a public health nurse.  Her 10 years in clinical practice was predominantly in the emergency department and primary care.  She most recently taught pediatric nursing, obstetric nursing, and nursing leadership at St. Catherine University.  Beginning in 2016, she is working full-time with Star Legacy Foundation.

Ms. Wimmer lectures to health professionals, conducts research and workshops for all audiences on perinatal loss throughout the United States.  As a stillbirth mother and a health professional, she feels inspired to help both communities understand each other better and work together to prevent poor outcomes.

Lindsey and Trent live in Eden Prairie, Minnesota with their three living children, Grant, Bennett, and Austyn.
