Originally qualifying as a secondary school math and science teacher at the University of Tasmania, Lynne has not only taught these subjects but also subsequently worked in industry as a laboratory technician for a petrochemical company, taught computer studies to classes up to senior secondary college, spent 5 years in a travelling drug education program for primary schools, undertaken relief (supply) teaching from preparatory to grade 10 classes, trained adults in a variety of workplace related topics, managed a training organization and an adult education program and worked in workforce planning and development.
Lynne has a passionate interest in the education of gifted children and has volunteered extensively to advocate for and support and educate others in this area, as well as presenting at conferences. She has had articles published in state and national gifted education magazines and journals.
For quite some time, Lynne has wanted to spend a year teaching in Asia, and the opportunity has arisen now that her son is independent. She travelled to Bhutan in 2013 and, being enchanted by experience, is looking forward to living and working in Bhutan in 2015.
