Lynn Yeldell - Owner

In prepping for this, I asked my family what three words they would use to describe me. My nieces, Stephanie and Caroline, said connector, resilient, caring, and selfless, my sister-in-law, Michelle, replied charisma, my partner Elizabeth referred to me as inspiring, visionary, and kind. I was just amazed that they played along and with such powerful words. And then, my mother replied with, “POOR PEOPLE PERSON!!!!!!!!!” Yes, it was in all caps with that many exclamation points. May we all be surrounded by a family and a team who supports you, motivates you, and grounds you. Love you, Mom! I know that you are all three in my life!

That is a tough one! If it is a rainy, dreary day, I love staying home with a good college football game on and cooking. I also love a trail and day at the park with my dogs. I have so many ways I like to spend a day…and promise that I have never wasted a day off!

Travel! Whether it is a long trip to an exotic locale or a quick drive down the road to a new haunt, I love to get out of my familiar (and my head!). Travel inspires me by having new and unexpected experiences. And it also grounds me in reminding me how similar we humans all are!
