Life & Work with William Lindsey

Today we’d like to introduce you to William Lindsey.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
So my story started growing up in the West Jackson neighborhoods of Mississippi! Moving from home to home and school to school, I obtained a deep background as to what it meant to be humble and work hard! Living mostly with my aunts and mother, I became a very gentle and protective person who saw life with empathy and humility! I always wanted to explore what was beautiful in life! I found a passion in healthcare and later used it to fund my deeper passions, which included acting and photography. Currently pursuing a career in medicine, I plan to fund Jackson’s growth and recognition in the music and film industry, seeking more opportunity for prosperity in our city’s low-income areas!

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Of course not! I think being a black man in a rural, low socioeconomic city always have struggles! Through this process of growth, oftentimes being the only black man in the room in healthcare and dealing with the historical culture of Mississippi has some of the greatest struggles, but with a huge support system, some success has come.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am a Travel Nuclear Medicine and PET/CT specialist, traveling around this country to fulfill positions that can sometimes be lacked! I’m very proud to be a part of this career field, but my I have a passion for the arts. I am a photographer and have currently attempted to transition into cinematography! My ability to have as many shoots as I do, along with the amount of time I put in the hospital is always questioned by my peers, asking when do I sleep, which frankly, I don’t get enough!

What has been the most important lesson you’ve learned along your journey?
The most important lesson has been learning my worth and when to say no! As I was always taught to be giving, I had a problem adjusting to telling people I can’t do something for them. After a while, things can pile up, and I could get overwhelmed and that can be taxing to the mental health.
