Mindy was a spoiled southern girl who loved her daddy very much. She came on the canvas in 1983 and showed viewers how conniving she could be. It was then that she talked her father into marrying Vanessa Chamberlain, a woman that Mindy simply loved.

Mindy was one of the infamous four musketeers. Though the four were friends, Mindy was often jealous of Beth Raines. It was this envy that led us to see how manipulative Mindy could truly be. For example, when she felt as though she wasnít getting enough attention from Phillip, she staged a horse riding accident. Despite landing her in the hospital, it did prove that Mindy Lewis usually got what she wanted.

It wasnít until the 90ís that Mindy decided she truly wanted to become an independent woman. She approached her father for help with her new business as a fashion designer. He refused to help, not wanting to face the fact that his little girl had grown up.

In 1995, Mindy left Springfield to start a new life in Paris. She succeeded as a fashion designer and has returned to Springfield a handful of times since her departure.† She reunited with Rick at the end of the show.
