Graduating in 2005, she and her family moved to Raleigh, NC where she worked for seven years on the call-team at Wake Med Raleigh.

Lynn has worked at UNC for four-and-a-half years. Her daughter is now 25 and her son 27 – which is amazing as Lynn says she is " . . . only 29 years old." She lives in Holly Springs with her husband Keith, four cats, and a rescue dog named Toby.
