Graduate Student Profile - Lindsey Ehinger

Lindsey grew up in Springville, New York, a village infamous for a weekly regional livestock auction as well as an annual dairy festival. After earning a BS in Civil Engineering from Cornell University, she worked in forensic building engineering, before moving out to Jackson, Wyoming, on a whim. While furthering her career in construction management and sustainable building practices, Lindsey engaged her passion for travel. In 2011, she was fortunate to have the opportunity to visit her seventh continent, Antarctica. After visiting over 50 countries, Lindsey decided to return to academia to study the effects of governmental policy on emerging tourism destinations, and carried out research in Kyrgyzstan. She defended her MA thesis in June 2016.

Jacqueline will be assessing the benefits of cash donations [SD1] provided by coffee retailers to coffee-harvesting communities in Latin America,[SD2] in the name of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The purpose of the research is to determine whether the donations are merely public relations efforts to bring positive publicity onto the donating companies, or if the money is actually making a significant [SD3] difference, as will be identified through gathering the opinions of the recipients and specifically focusing on visual indicators and statistics; including, annual income and access to education and health care, in the lives of those who receive it.
