In this pandemic, especially during summer break and fall semester, when the department had very few people, Lynne was almost always there in her office, always smiling, extending help, and spreading kindness and calmness around. It was great to see her when human interaction was the bare minimum. She gives you a positive feeling anywhere you meet her – on or off duty. She also keeps the department clean and maintains hygiene to keep all of us safe and healthy. Occasionally, she shares donuts with us lone students and spreads joy amidst the mundane things of life!
