With a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and an MBA in Project Management, Lynn brings years of experience in the medical field to Stanford Sierra Youth & Families. Throughout her career she has brought many innovative solutions including implementing a medical records platform which included a training program for over 100 physicians and 400 staff. Additionally, Lynn oversaw the design of a new medical office building, keeping costs at 28% under budget.

Lynn is passionate about Stanford Sierra Youth & Families’ mission because of the holistic approach that is used to keep family units together. She supports the approaches used to support the individual needs of young people and their families to ensure a long-term solution. Although, like the agency, Lynn hopes that children are able to stay in their family home, she also advocates finding the best environment for every young person to thrive – whether that is their biological family or a resource/adoptive family.

When Lynn isn’t supporting physicians and advocating for kids and families, she is spending time with her partner, Jeff and their two fur babies and 12 chickens. Lynn and Jeff enjoy hosting parties for friends and family as well as travelling and reading.
