Entrepreneurial and masterful, Lynn has a formidable business mind. Her undergraduate degree is in business administration, and she has both taught and practiced Business Law. A graduate of the University of Florida Levin College of Law, she was admitted to the Florida Bar in 1990.

She was also a member of the Northeast Florida Human Trafficking Task Force and was responsible for all Duval County sex abuse cases for 18 months.

This same commitment compelled her to become formally trained in Collaborative Family Law, where her experience as a mediator is invaluable.
