Lindsay Ocal received her B.A. with majors in History and Archaeology and minors in Art History and Biblical Languages from Lycoming College in 2007. She earned an M.A. in Art History with a concentration in Egyptian Art and Archaeology from the University of Memphis in 2011. Before being introduced to conservation, she worked on archaeological digs in Egypt and Israel, interned at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, and studied Arabic at the American University in Cairo. While working for the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) as Project Assistant on the Conservation of the Akhenaten Talatat at Karnak Temple Project, she fell in love with conservation and decided to pursue it as a career. She spent two years working on archaeological conservation and documentation projects at Karnak Temple. She also participated in a workshop on Preventive Conservation at a historic house on Ossabaw Island, GA and spent 15 months interning in the Textile Conservation Lab at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
