While in college, Lynn began working in the outdoor industry as a raft guide and spending her winters teaching skiing. She enjoyed raft guiding, but it prevented her from kayaking as much as she liked. On a kayaking trip to the southeast she met Joe, of ACE kayaking school. He was impressed with her coaching skills, and offered her a job as a kayak instructor. Eager to retire from raft guiding, Lynn jumped at the chance. Lynn enjoys hiking with her dog, shredding the gnar, and living in a van down by the river. To find out more about Lynn’s coaching philosophy, check out her website at http://whitewaterbraid.com
