Lynne is now retired and happy to have the opportunity to “give back” by serving the Aquarium. Her career revolved around TV production, both as a college professor and a practitioner. Among her positions were Vice Chair of the Communications Department at California State University, Fullerton and Director of Programming for Valley Cable TV.
In the producer realm, her credits include a 45-program music series for public broadcasting and a DVD series on craft and technical jobs in television. She has written 12 books about media and taught or consulted in many countries, such as Australia, Guyana, Malaysia, Russia and Swaziland.
Her past volunteer work included being a Governor of the TV Academy and President of the Broadcast Education Association. With her husband, Paul, she has lived in Manhattan Beach since 1961 and raised three sons here. It was frequent trips to the Aquarium with her grandchildren, who wanted to check out the lobsters, which inspired her to start volunteering in 2009.
