We asked Lynn some questions, to learn a little bit more about her experience here, what she likes to do in her free time and some interesting facts you may not know!

1) What do you like about your role at Tech CU?

I enjoy working in an environment that keeps me busy with paperwork all day. Some people would get bored with this type of job responsibilities but I thrive in it.

2) What do you like to do when you’re not working?

I love green plants of all types. My house sometimes can feel like a jungle but I enjoy caring for the different types of plants and learning new things about them. I also do a little of sewing.

3) What is one thing on your “bucket list”

I would like to take an Alaska cruise to see the northern lights in person just once.

4) What food do you love that a lot of people might find a little odd?

I love peanut butter. My father worked shift work and was absent a lot from my extra-curricular activities, gymnastics and dancing lessons I did as a kid so we would carve out time to watch movies together and we’d eat peanut butter on everything. My favorite was and still is bananas, sweet pickles and peanut butter sandwiches.

5) What are you grateful for?

I am grateful for my family and close friends. They have always been there to love and support me no matter what.

6) What period of time would be the best to be born in?

I absolutely love big band music from the fifties and sixties. I listen to it all the time at home. I think it even helps my plants grow better. Lol. I should have been born 10 years earlier than what I was so that I could have experienced the big band music as it was created instead of listening to it from my cassettes and CD’s. Yes, I still have cassettes. My big boom box still works so I’m keeping my cassettes.

7) What do you think the ideal age to be is?

I don’t think there’s any such thing as a perfect age. I’m sure most people think back to a time in their life where they were the happiest and their bodies were in the best shape to enjoy life activities.
