Lynne is excited to be returning to her home conference as the Executive Director of Project Transformation Central Texas! Her journey began with Project Transformation at the North Texas chapter in Dallas as the Volunteer & Church Engagement Manager. Lynne received her bachelor's degree at San Fransisco State University, and her master's degree at Brite Divinity School. After moving to Texas, Lynne and her husband, Philip, became members at the First United Methodist Church of Hurst. After joining the PT North Texas team, both of her adult children served the chapter in multiple capacities. Through her work with Project Transformation and other areas of ministry, Lynne has developed a passion for engaging people in a kind of community that supports its children.
Lynne enjoys traveling and road trips, especially if they lead her to the beach, as well as drinking coffee and spending time with her family and dogs.
