Lindsey Sager joins the QuitDoc Team in DeSoto County!
July 30, 2021

The QuitDoc Foundation is pleased to welcome Lindsey Sager as the new Tobacco Prevention Specialist in DeSoto County. Lindsey will be overseeing the K-12 and SWAT goal areas, and helping facilitate the Tobacco Free Partnership of DeSoto County, a coalition of community leaders working together on tobacco issues that affect the residents of DeSoto County, particularly its most vulnerable residents: our youth.

Lindsey comes to QuitDoc Foundation from the DeSoto County School District. She has 8 years’ experience teaching various grades ranging from first to sixth. During her time as an educator, she’s volunteered numerous hours being an active member in the community with many committees and non-profit groups. Lindsey is a hard-working individual with a true heart for the youth in our community. In fact, she was named the 2021 DeSoto County Middle School Teacher of the Year. In addition, she served as the Department Leader, Middle School Cheerleading Sponsor, SAC, a participant on the summer planning board, and served on countless other clubs and organizations.

“I am beyond exited to represent DeSoto County as QuitDoc’s newest team member,” said Lindsey. “Implementing the education, prevention and treatment of tobacco in our community is a true passion of mine.”

In addition to her role as an educator, Lindsey is also a Health and Wellness Coach. As a coach, she cultivates and manages new and existing relationships by living a healthy lifestyle and recruiting others to do the same. Through coaching, she serves as a mentor to hundreds of women working towards health goals. Lindsey has truly developed a love for healthy living, in all capacity, and has a deep passion for helping others live happier, healthier, more fulfilling lives.

Lindsey and her husband Tommy reside in DeSoto with their two beautiful children, Gracie and Jude. They stay quite busy being active in their church, volunteering their time, giving back to their community, and enjoy traveling and spending time as a family.

The Partnership will continue to work on several initiatives to reduce youth access to tobacco products, diminish illnesses and exposure to secondhand smoke, and to promote tobacco cessation services throughout the county, and we are certain Lindsey will be an amazing attribute in our efforts.

The Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) Program will continue to be an active part of the partnership in DeSoto County. Florida’s SWAT Program has been a model for other states and remains a very effective youth prevention program.
