Lindsey Hawkins Bowman is a Jonesboro native, and while her title says she’s the Chief Psychologist – she’s not actually a psychologist or a doctor, but does find herself in situations where she is helping clients study and examine the minds and behaviors of themselves and also their target audience. She jokingly fills the role of “mom” for her employees too, which lends itself to plenty of opportunities to act as an unlicensed therapist. She and her best friend, Katie Spencer, co-founded Polish in 2020.
Lindsey is a Jonesboro native; she graduated from Westside High School and went on to get her Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Arkansas State University.

Though he is a city boy at heart, Cody spent most of his life growing up in the small town of DeWitt, Arkansas. He moved to Jonesboro in 2013 to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Multimedia Journalism from Arkansas State University. Cody graduated with that degree in 2017, and immediately began working for a local magazine as an editorial writer and photographer. In January 2021, Cody made the decision to join the polish team as the Creative Content Director, allowing him to do what he loved while also gaining experience in the social media marketing world. Today, Cody is the Social Media Director, handling and assisting with all of polish’s social media clients. A good way to get on Cody’s good side is to bring him an iced coffee or introduce him to new tunes.
