A Universal Orlando Success Story
Lindy – Stage Manager

Career Path
Lindy started her career at Universal Orlando® (UO) in February of 1997, when she was hired as an Attractions Attendant at Universal Studios Florida® (USF). She would go on to join the opening teams at two new attractions, including The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man®, which was a part of the grand opening of Universal’s Islands of Adventure® (IOA) in 1999.

Along the way, Lindy was promoted to Team Lead and would go on to hold supervisory positions in Attractions Operations and Admissions before taking a role in Human Resources as a Trainer. As a Trainer, Lindy was responsible for teaching and sharing UO’s values and service standards to new hires, which helped to set them up for success in their own careers. Being passionate about service to others and wanting to further the positive impact she had on Team Members, Lindy became a Team Member Services Representative in 2006, where she would assist with recognition programs and Team Member-only events. While in Team Member Services, an opportunity for Stage Manager in Entertainment became available in 2008. Willing to branch out, Lindy put her name forward and was selected for the position, in part because of her strong reputation as a leader. In Entertainment Operations, Lindy has served as a Stage Manager for several locations in both parks.
Best Career Decisions
Lindy’s career growth at UO has had a lot to do with her willingness to get out of her comfort zone and capitalize on available opportunities, even if that meant taking a new path. Along the way, she built relationships within her own department, with management, peers and those who reported to her, and across other departments, cultivating positive and professional working relationships. Additionally, she found ways to add value to UO by recognizing areas of improvement and suggesting solutions.
