Office Manager

Lindsay started her career at 17 when she enlisted in the United States Army as an Administrative Specialist. In 2000 she began working for the mobile rig group at IRI International which would later be acquired by National Oilwell Varco, L.P. where she would work for 16 years as the office manager.

During her career with NOV it consisted of supporting the Bakersfield division with their HR, AP, AR, safety (Cal/OSHA & OSHA) reporting, safety & accounting auditing, and many other internal and customer related functions. During 6 of those 16 years Lindsay was still serving actively in the United States Army Reserves with the 923rd Transportation Detachment located on Chester Avenue in Bakersfield, Ca.

After years of being told it would be impossible, on January 16th, 2016 Lincoln Thomas Hayward was born and Lindsay made the decision to take the first year off and spend with Lincoln raising him.
However, it didn’t take long before it was time for the next chapter to evolve and back to school she went to learn a new career that would hopefully help the community in one way or another. In June of 2017 she began her education in Ultrasonography. The beginning of August 2018 she accepted the position of Office Manager with Northwest Petroleum, Inc. while still attending her vascular module at High Desert Medical College.

Lindsay has volunteered on the Bakersfield National Cemetery Support Committee by building their Facebook page to help keep the community informed on upcoming events. She has also been involved in their annual BBQ’s and Wreaths Across America.

On her spare time, some of Lindsay’s hobbies include target shooting, golfing, listening to live music, anything challenging ONCE and spending time with her fiancée’ Scott Weaver and son Lincoln; where they travel to any given destination that they can ride their jeep and/or quads and spend time camping in their 5th wheel teaching their son about the outdoors.
