Lindsay Wong was Euclid’s finest student; however, it frustrated her that parallel lines have so much in common but never meet. She decided to change tangent. She graduated from Washington University in St. Louis, receiving both her Bachelor of Science and her master’s with honors in occupational therapy.

While the public praises her products, people are not purview to her proprietary pickling paradigm. Lindsay serves as the business manager at Coastal Pediatric Dental and Anesthesia.
