After retiring in 2010, Lynne decided to continue to follow her passion in helping and healing humans and animals by becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist through training at the Salter School, Fall River, MA and Certified Small Animal Massage Therapist through Bancroft School of Small Animal Massage, Worcester, MA. In May 2015, Lynne decided that she wanted to do more to help the elderly population in maintaining their strength/stability through weight bearing exercises; therefore she became a Certified Exercise Leader for Bone Builders of RI and leads group exercise with an emphasis on proper exercise techniques at the Smithfield Senior Center, Smithfield, RI. An advocate of sharing her knowledge and giving back to the community, Lynne spends her leisure time volunteering as a Facilitator for Vets N Pets, a venue for Veterans to express their feelings and rid their sorrows through expressive art and animal therapy.
