Education & Credentials

Lynn holds a B.A. in Psychology from Gettysburg College and an M.Ed. in Training and Development from Pennsylvania State University. She has earned the Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) credential through Nonprofit Leadership Alliance and is a Prosci Certified Change Management Practitioner. She is a member of the Central Pennsylvania Chapter of the Association for Talent Development (ATD), National ATD, and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW).


Lynn enjoys spending time with her significant other, watching movies, and listening to modern acapella groups. She spoils her two cats, Thor and Loki, and loves to stay active by running and exercising at the gym. Lynn loves to read but ends up spending way too much time watching reaction videos on YouTube instead. In 2010, Lynn developed a website to list links to resources that support youth aging out of foster care. In 2021, this effort was transformed into a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Aging Out Institute. A former foster youth who aged out of care herself, Lynn has a passion for bringing nonprofits from around the country together to share resources, strategies, and to build best practices to help these youth transition to adulthood successfully.
