Upon completing the Silicon Valley Leadership program in 2001, Lindley had the opportunity to tour Morgan Autism Center and meet Jennifer Sullivan (former Executive Director) as well as several other staff members. After completing the tour and seeing what the school had to offer to the autism community, he knew he wanted to be a part of the center. So, Lindley immediately joined the board and has been a part of it ever since. Lindley has previously served as the Vice Chairman as well as the Chairman of the board. He currently serves on the Board Recruitment Committee.
In 2010, Lindley retired as Assistant Sheriff for the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office, after working there for more than 33 years. Lindley is happily married and has been for more than 45 years, and he and his wife have one adult daughter. Lindley currently has a bakery catering business, Lil Bites Bakery, and hopes to one day open an actual bakery in the area. He also serves on two other boards and spends most of his free time either playing golf, playing with his dog or baking.
