Lynn is a specialist in media analysis, organizational development, strategic planning, and message development. With 25 years of experience in communications, she completed the original research that led to the launch of ReThink. Looking to learn from others, she assessed all prior collaborative communications models and designed ReThink as a hybrid, combining the best of each.
Lynn has conducted extensive media analysis on a wide range of foreign policy issues and was part of an international research team conducting groundbreaking research in a five-country study of globalization themes in television news coverage. Lynn completed a senior Fellowship at Fenton Communications and has served as a communications consultant to Fenton, the Ploughshares Fund, the Carnegie Corporation, the Peace and Security Initiative, the Open Society Institute, the Proteus Fund, the Piper Fund, the Atlantic Philanthropies, and others.
She earned a Masters Degree in Global Media and Communications at the University of Melbourne, with a uniquely tailored focus on advocacy communications, and graduated from Michigan State. She’s a prodigious gardener, a self-described “font geek,” and a pretty fine carpenter, when she isn’t juggling requests from her kids.
