Lynne is one of a kind. When you think about the kind of person you want to help you build a team, you probably imagine a long list of trait ... s you would want: smart, hard working, diligent, of course, but also friendly, and who understands the big big picture, as well as the very small details of every person on your team, both who you have, and who you want. Lynne is that person. She is someone who can take the biggest vision of what your organization wants to become and turn that into every minute step and every one on one human interaction that is going to make that happen. I have worked with Lynne for many years at Applied Minds, and she earned my highest respect each and every time we set out to do something together, every time, without fail.
