Lynn and her husband, Jason, are co-founders of Harvest Hope Farm, a 501c3 non-profit that strives to bring hope to others and also participates in medical science research for Huntington's Disease through their "special sheep".
Lynn is also a counselor, working with and training foster parents in Minnesota.
