Lindsey has always had a passion for activism and social justice. At just eight years old, she fought to include girls in the all-boys recess soccer game. While in college, she canvassed door-to-door to promote voter registration. Today, she is an attorney specializing in juvenile and family law.
Lindsey grew up in Loveland, playing soccer for the local league, leading local service projects through the National Honors Society, and running track and playing basketball on the varsity teams. Growing up, Loveland was still a small community, and Lindsey came to appreciate how common values and goals shape an individual, and our societies.
For college, Lindsey attended the University of Northern Iowa on a soccer scholarship, and then the University of Denver for law school. During this time, she interned for former Congressman Bruce Braley in the House of Representatives, former Senator Tom Harkin on the Health, Education, Labor, and Pension Committee investigating for-profit colleges, and clerked for the White House Domestic Policy under the Obama Administration in Washington, DC.
After passing the Colorado bar exam, Lindsey started her own law firm where she is able to amplify the voices of those in need on a daily basis. She also volunteers at free legal nights for the underserved, and is a member of the Colorado Bar Association, Colorado Women’s Bar Association, American Association of Justice, and the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association. She plans on using this experience to reform the criminal justice system with legislation and her position on the Judiciary Committee.
On the weekends, you can find Lindsey biking the trails in Arvada or hanging out at the Old Town farmer’s market. Lindsey values the sense of community in this district, and she is committed to protecting that. She believes that everyone deserves the opportunity to participate in the decisions affecting us all, and as a Colorado State Representative she will work to give everyone the ability to thrive.
Rep. Daugherty began her work in the Colorado State House in 2021 to represent House District 24 (Arvada) in the legislature. She chairs the Health & Insurance Committee and also serves as a member of the Judiciary and Finance committees. She has passed legislation to make health care more affordable for Coloradans, reform the criminal justice system to make our communities safer, and save Colorado families money.
