As a coach, mentor, facilitator, 25-year business owner, wife of 34 years and mother of two young adults, Lynn brings practical life experience and a whole brain coach approach to her work. In conversations with seniors, family members, volunteers and service providers at SAGE Housing Forums, seniors centre classes and events, Age Friendly Edmonton Phone Chats and in person decluttering and organizing with seniors in their homes, Lynn has gained a clear understanding of older person’s issues.
She has a special talent for connecting seniors and families with up-to-date, practical information and trustworthy service people and programs in their communities. She builds & nurtures relationships with program leaders, instructors, agency staff and service providers to engage and support seniors to stay healthy, happy and independent longer. For her own life balance, Lynn walks, gardens, cooks, self & buddy coaches and meditates daily. She catches local events with her husband & friends and loves to groove to the Blues.
I’m looking forward to meeting each of our members and volunteers at the AGM and over the upcoming months.
My role is to support you in being successful as SUN members and volunteers. I will build relationships with new and existing volunteers; find out what you need for support, both people and resources, and then connect the right people to the appropriate volunteer opportunity.
I know you bring a wealth of experience from your career and life. I’m open to learning more about you and how you would like to contribute to Improving the quality of life of all seniors in Alberta.

INTERNATIONAL VOLUNTEER DAY - December 5
International Volunteer Day was established by the United Nations General Assembly on December 17, 1985.
On International Volunteer Day, we celebrate and recognize volunteerism in all its facets. If your volunteering helps youth, aids in moving towards global peace or sustainable human development it all contributes to building a stronger community somewhere. SUN recognizes all volunteer commitments and applaud hundreds of millions of people who volunteer to make the world a better place.
