“And if we went to the zoo, I had to push whatever button was available to learn about the exhibit or cage or whatever we were passing by”, she confesses.

Because of her insatiable inquisitive nature, Lynne is a good listener. But those that know her well, know that she is a passionate communicator. In fact, her mother says that she sang before she talked.  “Mom would sing to me ‘Black, black, black is the color of my true love’s hair’ and other songs at bedtime” she tells us. 

The fact that she had a family that was very chatty by nature, meant that she had to learn how to actively listen and observe others’ conversations – all in spite of the fact that she’s been blind since birth.

Her parents would recount their day, and rarely could Lynne get a word in edgewise. As a result, she learned a great deal about how to discern a person’s mood or attitude by their tone alone. Learning how to interpret speech patterns, intonation & a person’s emotional energy became her strongest skill set.  Her ability to read people, without even seeing them, is almost a 6th sense that she’s developed as compensation for her lack of vision.
