While raised in London, marriage and job offers in education found Lynn moving from London to Chatham. She and her husband soon discovered Chatham Kent was a great place to raise a family so planted roots and raised their two sons here.
Lynn views life and the world as a classroom with lessons to be learned every day from those whose paths she crosses. She is grateful for these lessons (and others!) some modeled by family, friends, children and colleagues while others were learned in interactions with those she has met in her volunteer efforts, faith community, and the school of life...
