Lynn McLaughlin has served in many roles as an educator … Superintendent, Principal, Vice-Principal, Teacher, and Educational Consultant. In addition to her business, Lynn now teaches future Educational Assistants at her local College.

As a best-selling and award-winning author, Lynn has now teamed up with her niece, Amber Raymond, to co-author a children’s book series titled, “The Power of Thought”. Both are passionate about being proactive when it comes to children’s mental health. When children learn to manage their emotions at a young age, they learn to problem-solve and find positive solutions to everyday situations.

Lynn has hosted the podcast, Taking the Helm for over three years and introduces us to a new, courageous guest on Wednesdays. Every episode is archived and searchable on her website by keyword or topic. One of her guests might be the change agent you need in your own life!

Lynn’s professional speaking experiences have been local, provincial, and international. She is passionate about children’s emotional well-being and what we as adults must do to ensure our children have the skills, mindset, and strategies to be successful and happy in today’s world.

Dedicated to community causes, Lynn is a member of 100 Women Who Care Windsor/Essex and is a Rotarian. As a brain tumour survivor, she works tirelessly to support the goals of the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.
