Program Director for Continental Europe
Lynn has worked in International Education since 2002. Before coming to UNC in 2009, she served as the Director of the Center for International Education at Albion College in Michigan. There she enjoyed working with both students going abroad for a semester/year and international students coming to Albion to get a degree. Prior to her change of direction in 2002, Lynn had taught French, Spanish, and English at the University level and in her own company for over 20 years. Although she loved teaching grammar and culture to her students, she was lured into international education mostly because she wanted students to go practice what they were learning and to see the world with their own eyes. She is often moved to tears by the stories and experiences of returning students. Lynn enjoys working with her European partners and help prepare students to study in Europe.
Lynn grew up in France, came to the U.S. for college but returned to Europe to work in Germany and Finland; she gets by in both of these languages. Life brought her back to the States where she continued her studies. She has a M. A. in Romance Languages (University of Georgia) and ABD (Michigan State University). She has been very fortunate to travel to many countries in the world. Music has always been an important part of her life and she especially enjoys hearing live music so she has made it a point to see a live band in almost every country she has visited. She is happy living in North Carolina with easy access to the beach, a favorite destination.
