Lynn first entered the nonprofit sector in 2012 by way of serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Vanuatu, where she worked for two years as an English Literacy Trainer and Teacher. While she originally anticipated a life-long career in teaching, Lynn's experience in the Peace Corps significantly impacted the trajectory of her career thereafter. Upon returning to the U.S., Lynn spent several years as a teacher while simultaneously going back to school for an MBA in Nonprofit Leadership and volunteering at local nonprofits in her free time. In 2017, Lynn stepped into a lead grant writer position that eventually led to her role as Senior Manager of Development & Communications at the United Nations Association of Greater Boston where she spent the next 4 years. In 2020, Lynn founded LMA Grant Consulting LLC and has enjoyed working with clients ever since!
Lynn holds an MBA in Nonprofit Leadership from New England College and a BA in Elementary Education and Liberal Studies with a focus in Psychology from Westfield State University.
In her free time, Lynn enjoys traveling with her fiancé and has two fur babies that occasionally join her Zoom calls!
