Lynn has a passion for diversity, servant leadership, and the collaborative process. With more than 20 years of experience in facilitation, leadership development, civic engagement, and visioning for strategic action, her extensive community leadership experience has culminated in a unique ability to facilitate the gathering of community visions that can be converted into actionable projects that better the community. The collaborative process she uses has become a sustainable model for civic engagement by empowering participants to convert their dreams into civic action.
Lynn’s ability to attract diverse stakeholders to this process–giving all people a voice–has led to more creative, sustainable solutions for community transformation. Lynn’s facilitation and leadership training began in 1988 with Leadership Evansville in Evansville, Indiana. In 2000, she received training through Leadership Evansville in the Indiana Leadership Initiative curriculum, a project supported by the National Association for Community Leadership and Lilly Endowment, Inc. She later studied advanced facilitation and leadership techniques at the Shambhala Institute for Authentic Leadership in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Lynn conducted her undergraduate studies in Restaurant, Hotel, and Institutional Management at Purdue University.
