Lindsay Strong Holshue was born in California and moved to Salt Lake City, UT with her family at 10 years old. She returned to Cali years later to attend The Makeup Designory in Burbank and the SkinScience Institute of Laser and Esthetics where she became a Certified Professional Makeup Artist and licensed Master Esthetician, respectively. Before joining the Vans Warped Tour as a roadie in 2012, she visited her then boyfriend, Mike on the tour in 2011 and was inspired to create a line of hands-free bags for women on the go. Lindsay was tired of stuffing her pockets with the things she needed and constantly worrying she had lost something, so Pelt and YOUtility Belt were born. Lindsay stays busy running her online accessory business ( and working as a makeup artist and esthetician in the Salt Lake City area. She and Mike were married in the summer of 2012 and the couple enjoys traveling together and spending time with their pups, Cash and Wednesday.
