Lindsey and David have an adorable little boy, Ford, who is currently 9 months old.
David is a Sales Manager for Corteba Agri Science. This company resulted from a merger of Dow and Dupont, so the company is a manufacturer of agricultural chemicals. Lindsey is in Corporate Communication with American Airlines. Both of their jobs involve traveling.
The family loves traveling and spending time outdoors. They enjoy entertaining and watching football, especially College Football. Both David and Lindsey went to UGA.
Lindsey and David were enchanted by Lost Creek as soon as they entered the neighborhood. They knew this is where they wanted to live, even before they saw their beautiful home. Of course, once they drove through Lost Creek with all the trees and wonderful amenities, they were hooked! They enjoy that this is an established neighborhood with traditional homes. Their previous home was on five acres, so the privacy and trees in Lost Creek were perfect for them!
In addition, they have come back “home.” David’s family is in Statesboro, GA, and Lindsey’s family is in Marietta. So they are close to both families and they have lots of willing babysitters for little Ford!

Cynthia worked with the New York Department of Education as a high school principal.

This successful high school in Brooklyn, NY, is 90% male and has a graduation rate of 91%, far higher than the typical NY high school graduation rate of 75%. Cynthia won many awards with this high-performing Academy. However, she decided to retire early and move to Georgia, where she works part-time as a consultant to other principals.
Cynthia and Julia were attracted to Lost Creek because of all the trees and the fact that the Lost Creek homes are older with a lot of character. Cynthia moved from a New York Brownstone and appreciates the space between homes here.
Cynthia enjoys reading and traveling. She is hoping to meet other neighbors with similar interests and perhaps join others in Book Clubs or Knitting/Crocheting Clubs.
