Lynn has worked in conservation and natural resources ever since she took her first field science classes at the University of Colorado. Raised in New England, she gradually moved west and north until reaching Alaska.
Lynn spent her early career working seasonally for the National Park Service, U. S. Forest Service and U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in Wyoming, Montana and Alaska, while wintering as an outdoor science instructor in Yosemite National Park. After permanently locating in Alaska, she taught high school biology for 12 years before returning to school herself to earn a Master’s Degree. She subsequently worked as a grant writer, watershed coordinator, outreach consultant and adjunct professor before joining Pacific Birds in 2007. Lynn is now the writer and computer behind the scenes for Pacific Birds newsletters and posts. She greatly enjoys communicating about birds and conservation.
When not at work, it is a toss-up between birding and fishing, but luckily they work well together. She also enjoys gardening and spending time with friends and family.
