Lynn joined SAGEbroadview in 2001 to bring her special brand of calm order to our sometimes hectic universe. These days, with our growing team across three offices, we still depend on Lynn’s talent for taking care of every little thing as we move full-speed ahead. Lynn has a way of making it seem easier than it is, often serving as our first point of contact for clients and visitors, while simultaneously tending to our smooth-flowing business operations.
Before joining us, Lynn completed a bachelor’s in marketing from Rutgers School of Business and initiated her professional career in the vibrant New York City’s garment center, selling women’s sportswear to major department stores in the city that never sleeps. From there, she became product manager at a private label company, overseeing a team of designers, production coordinators and cost analysts in creating product lines according to rigorous, private-label specifications.
In 2018, she and her husband Scott achieved a milestone every parent dreams of and dreads: Both of their children are now young adults. Their eldest daughter Sarah is pursuing her physician assistant degree, while her younger brother Colin is now at the University of Delaware, studying engineering. Lynn’s new black lab puppy, Kona is doing all he can to fill the empty space left behind.
Hands down, it’s reading. I am often juggling three or more books at a time (and our Amazon bills show it): one for my iPad, one on my Kindle and one hardbound. On vacation, I’m even worse. I should have a t-shirt that says, “I’d rather be reading a book.”
Dogs. All of them, but especially our new black lab puppy, Kona. He’s got big paws to fill, as we recently lost our beautiful, 13-year-old black lab Bella. She had a way of looking me straight in the eye like nobody else could. In my next life, I think I’d like to be a veterinarian.
I’ve been an avid yoga practitioner for more than 30 years. I find it a perfect way to maintain balance and harmony in my life. I also stay energized with a daily morning walk with our new pup. I call it our “morning chill.”
Our favorite regular getaways reflect life’s balance. I love spending time by the water (book in hand). In fact, we dream of the day we might retire to a waterfront property, where the whole family can gather. But I also love the energy level of New York City, which we visit often. I think it’s good to have a mix of calm retreat and vibrant activity in life.
With the extra time, we’re trying to travel more. We’re planning a number of other outings in the upcoming year, including a Cape May bike/wine tour, a concert in Asbury Park, and a trip to Miami Beach for our 24th wedding anniversary. That said, I’m still getting used to not having almost all our focus centered around our kids’ lives! I know we have to let them figure out things on their own now.
