As a spotlight performer, individuals are chosen by leadership for demonstrating the Air Force's Core Values: Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in All We Do. 


Airman 1st Class Meredith Lindsay, 22nd Medical Support Squadron medical logistics technician, received the spotlight performer for the week of Feb. 6-10.


Lindsay’s duties consist of receiving and delivering all medical and office supplies, as well as pharmaceutical and equipment assets on a daily basis. She ensures the clinics on-hand stock is properly managed. She is also responsible for helping ensure the medical mobile support team equipment worth $147,000 is ready to deploy at a moment’s notice. Some of her other duties consist of being the Medical Group’s Airman’s Council President and her flight’s section safety monitor.

“Lindsay embodies service before self, which was showcased when she created a fitness challenge that resulted in a 12 percent loss in total body fat for the flight that also helped increase physical fitness test scores,” said Master Sgt. Sheila Nadzieja, 22nd MDSS Medical Logistics Flight chief.                                                                   


Lindsay, a San Antonio, Texas, native, joined the Air Force in January 2016 and arrived at McConnell in May 2016. Her hobbies include anything outdoors.


Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?

My Father, a retired senior master sergeant, has always been my example in life. He has taught me almost everything I know and is the best person I know.


If you could give advice to a new Airman, what would it be and why?

My advice to new Airmen would be to never stop learning. Absorb everything that everyone around you has to offer.


What is one goal that you have already accomplished, or would like to accomplish, during your Air Force career?

I would like to commission and become a medical service corps officer.


Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way? 

The most interesting place I have traveled to was Albuquerque, New Mexico, when I went to a balloon festival. The Native American culture and the traditions were amazing to see.


If you had the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?

If I could meet anyone it would be the Wright brothers, just to hear all the history of the aircraft and experiences that they had.
