    Lindsay Bloomfield Volunteer Coordinator

    As a native Californian, Lindsay has always believed that the best days start at the coast and is excited to work with a caring group of volunteers to share the love of a great beach day and the healing energies of the ocean with the children of her favorite city, Los Angeles.  When she’s not at the beach, Lindsay’s hard at work at E! News heading up their digital product group or practicing yoga, listening to country music and hanging out with friends and family.
