During her 40-year involvement with CHW Ottawa Centre, Lynn took on such roles as Centre President and Vice-President, each for two terms, Recording Secretary, Corresponding Secretary, Publicity Chair, and chairs of various campaigns and fundraising events.

Her professional life spanned 44 years, working in the high-tech industry for Fortune 500 companies or leading technology providers as one of the top-producing salespersons in Canada.

Lynn recently retired to devote all her efforts to her upcoming role as CHW National President. She hopes to transfer the skills she developed during her career to help CHW achieve its new fundraising milestones and to inspire CHW teams of devoted volunteers and supporters.
