Overview

Lynn’s capabilities as a former educator and translator equal efficient communication and meticulous attention to detail on clients’ complex deals.

Lynn brings excellent language abilities and an understanding of business concerns to corporate work. Before attending law school, Lynn taught English as a Second Language through Teach for America, translated for parents within a large, urban school district, and helped a philanthropic venture clarify data for investors. Lynn knows there is always a way to make sophisticated and technical ideas comprehensible. She uses her skillset as a former educator to efficiently communicate with stakeholders when working towards legal solutions. Furthermore, her training in literary translation gave rise to her detail-oriented nature and awareness of ambiguity – a true asset to clients when drafting commercial contracts.

In addition to her prior work experience, Lynn completed internships with an international automotive parts manufacturer and a leading global paper and pulp company. Her understanding of the client experience and business operations helps her anticipate and meet client needs. She also clerked for the Hon. Charles M. Walker of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Middle District of Tennessee.

Community Leadership

Lynn collaborates to build a community of young philanthropists.

Since 2016, Lynn has volunteered for a nonprofit named Slingshot, which mobilizes young philanthropists as investors to eradicate poverty in their communities. The organization was founded by businesspeople who set out to build a cutting-edge and innovative algorithm to measure the impact of different philanthropic investments. Lynn advises the venture on community engagement and program metrics to measure nonprofit partners’ success, conducts market research to help analysts monetize nonprofit outcomes and compares the return on investment (ROI) of each nonprofit.

Prior to her involvement with Slingshot, Lynn taught English as a Second Language (ESL) at the K-2 level through Teach for America in Memphis.
