From that point onward, her mother nurtured Lynn’s love of all things architecture. Lynn is a proud graduate of Pennsylvania State University and Columbia University.

She continues to love her profession because of the people she collaborates with during each project – clients, contractors, consultants, craftspeople and her lga colleagues – they bring hard-earned expertise, creative ideas and a sense of comradery to the table.
