Biographical Info

Lynn graduated with her bachelor’s degree in Environmental & Sustainability Studies with a concentration in Sustainable Food & Agriculture from George Mason University in summer 2020. She first learned about the Greenhouse & Gardens program as a student in fall 2018 when she needed to earn volunteer hours for a class. While completing volunteer hours, Lynn quickly fell in love with the Greenhouse & Gardens program and went on to complete an internship in the summer of 2019. In early 2020, the Presidents Park Hydroponic Greenhouse Coordinator position opened up and Lynn applied for the position, which yielded an offer to join the Office of Sustainability’s Greenhouse & Gardens team! Lynn is directly supervised by Doni Nolan, the Program Manager for the Greenhouse & Gardens program, and hosts volunteers and interns while ensuring the Presidents Park Hydroponic Greenhouse operates efficiently and provides an opportunity for one-of-a-kind experiential learning to all who visit. Lynn loves working collaboratively with Alexa Hines, the Potomac Heights Vegetable Garden Coordinator, and Hala Elbarmil, the Innovation Food Forest Coordinator, to create incredible opportunities for the Mason Nation and the surrounding community to learn about sustainable agriculture. In her free time, she enjoys gardening, cooking, traveling, and hiking with her rescue beagle, Chloe.
