Lyn was born and raised in the Atlanta, GA area, and is a University of Georgia graduate. Her mom and siblings all still living in Georgia. She decided after college to move to Colorado, working on a guest ranch as a horse wrangler, and riding the mountain trails for years. She worked after that for the Sheraton Hotel Corporation in Steamboat Springs for 6 years in Sales. After marrying and having 2 children, the family moved to Nashville, TN.
In 1997, she became a realtor with the equestrian based Grassland Real Estate in Franklin, TN and specialized in selling horse farms across the state. Her husband, Bob, relocated for his job back to his hometown of Tampa, and Lyn sold their horse farm and moved the horses to a new farm in Dade City in 2015. In 2018 they bought a waterfront condo on Lido Key and fell in love with the Sarasota area.
Their son Brett lives in Lakeland with his wife and 2 boys. Daughter Jennifer lives in Wesley Chapel, with her husband Logan who works in Corrections for Hillsborough County.
She and Bob spend weekends now on their boat, riding their Harleys on gorgeous Florida backroads, and feeding a small herd of miniature horses and one donkey, Daisy.
