Lynn O’Connell

If there are two things at the core of what makes Lynn who she is, they are event planning and adventure. She has spent time living abroad, where she planned a variety of small and larger-scale charity events ranging from galas to spelling bees and even fishing tournaments.

Lynn started out as a journalist before joining the Foreign Service and acting as a diplomat in Africa and Eurasia. From there, she attained an advanced degree in philanthropy and started working with not-for-profit organizations.

Travel, theater, and teaching (or the Three T’s, as she calls them) are Lynn’s greatest passions. She’s also a licensed tour guide in several cities and loves leading walking tours and food tours. She even produces live theater productions and moonlights as a teacher.
