Lynn was an art major in college but found a love of computers along the way. She is a former IT Manager and has volunteered at the Clarke for 4 years. She grew up living in many different States. Each place they moved, her parents would teach Lynn and her brother about the area by taking them to local museums - she has loved museums ever since.
