Lynn was born in the Midwest, and summered in Canada, giving rise to her easygoing and steady outlook. After receiving her bachelor’s degree from the University of Arizona in 1982, Lynn moved to Truckee in 1994 in search of open space and adventure. While working seasonally as a guide for REI Adventures in Death Valley and the Utah Canyonlands, Lynn held a position as the ward clerk in the Tahoe Forest Emergency Room. That exposure to the medical world piqued her interest, and in 2013 Lynn received her certified Clinical Medical Assistant Certificate from Truckee Meadows Community College.
Lynn is married and has a son who attends Alder Creek Middle School. When not working or studying, she can be found tearing up the local mountain bike trails or swimming in open water.
