Lynn started at Fuller Lowenberg in 2000 as the office administrator. Coming from a family of medical professionals, Lynn was encouraged to start her education in the nursing field. While working in the medical field at her prior position, she was forced to choose between falsifying a document or being fired; she chose the latter. Looking for a new job, she answered a help-wanted ad at Fuller Lowenberg & Co. CPAs (FL). That decision changed her professional life.
While working at FL and showing an analytical aptitude for numbers, partner Howard Fuller suggested she go back to college for accounting. Using that encouragement, Lynn went back to school, part-time, at Suffolk County Community College.
While studying for her accounting degree, Lynn still had a desire to be involved in the medical field and spent 5 years as a volunteer EMT for Commack Volunteer Ambulance Corps. While a member, she earned the “Most Valuable New Member” award. As work, school and life became a challenge to balance, Lynn resigned as an EMT and committed herself to earning her accounting degree.
As Lynn progressed in her studies, she was given responsibilities as a bookkeeper, then staff accountant. She completed her education at SUNY Old Westbury and passed the CPA exam in 2008.
Having a background in volunteerism, she saw an opportunity to combine both the love of community service and accounting. In order to grow the Not-For-Profit portion of the firm, she received her Certificate in Not-For-Profit Accounting from NYU. She believes that helping and guiding Not-For-Profits is one more avenue to servicing our communities.
Lynn is a member of the AICPA, NY Society of CPAs, ncCPAp, Society of Financial Service Professionals, and the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
