Why I love Hope
Lynne loves the people of Hope — the students, alumni, faculty, staff and administrators. She loves learning how Hope has impacted so many people in life-changing ways. As a student, as an alumna and as an employee, she continues to be impacted daily by the people of Hope. Through her work, she enjoys that she can now help others have unique Hope experiences, creating their own lifetime memories.
Some of Lynne’s career highlights have included celebrating with Hope’s athletic teams as they have won national championships and helping to host various Division III NCAA Championships on campus.
