She has a first class BA(Hons) in Business Management, a Teaching Degree (PGCE) and a Diploma of Postgraduate Studies in Education. Over the past few years Lynn has been involved in property investing, having been taught by the internationally renowned Simon Zutshi. From attending Simon’s Property Mastermind Programme Lynn, along with her partner Bernie Wales, have built up a property portfolio in the South of England. In addition to this she has helped others by training, coaching and mentoring to build their own portfolios, as well as helping investors make a far better return than they can get in the bank or building society.
At the start of her career, Lynn worked for a local firm of solicitors in Southampton. After training she progressed to become the firm’s specialist in bankruptcy, liquidation and contract law. Lynn was pleased to record a very high success rate on behalf of her clients.
Her teaching journey started during ‘time off’ to bring up her own children. Lynn taught computing to autistic and other children with special needs in the special educational sector. After eight successful years, she decided it was time to move on to teach in her local Primary Schools, where she stayed for a further seven years teaching children across many year groups. She quickly became Year Leader and ICT Manager.
Now, a Director of our company, Lynn spends her time continuing to help people, something she gets much pleasure from. Whether it is working with joint venture partners on property projects, helping investors get a better return from their money, coaching/mentoring property investors or helping people find a solution to their property problem, Lynn will always find an ethical win win solution.
