Mary Lynn is passionate about helping young adults discern significant life choices in the context of higher education. She is committed to living the university's students-first mission as she accompanies students through the admissions process from their very first contact with the campus to enrollment. Prior to working at Kent State Geauga and the Twinsburg Academic Center, she served as a Catholic campus minister at high schools and colleges in Pennsylvania and Ohio, including the University Parish Newman Center at the Kent Campus. A native of Scranton, Pa., Mary Lynn is naturally a huge fan of NBC's "The Office" and in her free time enjoys cycling, hiking, reading, editing, collaging, volunteering in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and photography. She is a Trained SoulCollage® facilitator, too.
Mary Lynn received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Arts from Marywood University in May 2004, and a Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry from the University of Dayton in August 2009.
