This beautiful career woman and mother of three believes in working hard, playing hard and enjoying everything that life has to offer—”even its challenges.” Like us all, Lynn has had to fight battles. It was her divorce that loomed largest for her: “It threatened to break me.” But the beautiful thing is that it did not break her. She has come out the other side with three sons who are “living their best lives”. Guess who’s showing them how? Go Lynn! As a mom, community volunteer and working professional, Lynn appreciates the lessons that the women in her life taught her. “My mother and aunt showed me what it was to be a good parent, and my grandmother showed me what it was to be a strong and powerful woman.”
