She was a lead designer and photo editor for the 13 years she worked at The Providence Journal, where she also worked with Bill Ostendorf, founder of Creative Circle. Large projects she worked on included stories about Noel Earley, a man dying of ALS; Edward DiPrete, the former governor of R.I. who was convicted of corruption; an oil spill near Newport, R.I.; and an historical look at Rhode Island over the course of the twentieth century. Lynn edited award-winning photo columns (Mary Beth Meehan's "Our Times," and Connie Grosch's "Weddings"), and won numerous other magazine and newspaper design and editing awards.
Before working at the Journal, she was art director of the Boston-based Tab Newspapers, and art director and managing editor of New England Business magazine. She held other magazine editing and production jobs before that.
