Lynn joined the Sunbeam Board of Directors in 2017. Through her work in the education sector, she had the opportunity to see the good work Sunbeam does to support children and adults with special needs, and their families.
With over 30 years in Education, as a teacher, Vice-Principal and Principal, Lynn recently retired. She has been involved with the Waterloo Minor Hockey Association, her daughter’s dance studio, and the Waterloo Region Air Show, helping at the Veterans’ tent.
She and her husband David are proud parents of two grown children and have one four-legged child. Lynn and her family love to travel and in the summer, spend a lot of time gardening and on their sailboat. Family meals and get togethers are a joy and celebration.
As both a parent and an educator, Lynn believes we need to celebrate the efforts and programmes we have at Sunbeam, in the importance of advocating for those who may not have a voice. Lynn also recognizes the importance of Board members asking the tough questions and looking at things from many perspectives.
Lynn views Sunbeam as a hidden gem in our community; one which needs to be honoured, celebrated and appreciated, and she feels privileged to give back to the community in her position as a Board member of Sunbeam
