Lynette grew up in the small Wisconsin town of Boscobel, home of the Gideon Bible. After attending college at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and Platteville achieving an A.A. degree she decided a break was needed n order to figure out which academic discipline she wanted to pursue. While contemplating intensely on her choices she met and married Fernando. Lynette returned to college and studied Small Business Management and Bookkeeping. After several years of working in management she found herself once again meditating on her future. The powers that be answered and she returned to the academic life in pursuit of a double major in Physical and Occupational Therapy. She found time to assist in the Special Resource Center helping quadriplegics and the legally blind in the classroom setting as well as reading for the blind. In the midst of her professional goals she had a difficult pregnancy which temporarily (...so she thought) would interrupt her coursework. She attempted to return to her studies, but the stork visited a second time. After the birth of their daughter, an unwelcomed visitor arrived a year and a half later, Brain Cancer. After 7 years of fighting, Fernando passed away. (2003) This experience led Lynette down another path-Nursing. She returned to college again in 2008 after 12 successful years in the automobile industry as a Business Development Center Director and Toyota Master Certified Customer Relations Manager (yes, more schooling...she studied through Toyota University for that title!). She completed her nursing studies in a class with students the age of her children (sigh) and was now a Certified Licensed Vocational Nurse. She remarried in 2010 and became a new mother again to a beautiful stepdaughter. As trouble seems to seek Lynette out, her nursing career was short-lived; she suffered an injury while assisting a patient; an injury she is working to overcome. Lynette is Publisher and Co-Founder of Baha’i Studies in the Covenant and All Things Baha’i in addition to several online forums and web page. She is now under the tutelage of Mike Moum as she learns how to navigate the technical aspects of blogging. She became a Baha’i in 1989 and has served as Baha’i Representative at California State University of Long Beach, Interfaith Center and in other elected and appointed positions in the Baha'i Faith.
