Originally from Jacksonville Florida, having lived and traveled all over the United States, Lynn Abood settled in Maine in 1982. She raised her children in Portland where she resided for over 30 years before moving to Cornish Village in 2018. 
Lynn studied engineering at the University of Michigan and Business at the University of Southern Maine. Lynn’s work experience includes high level management and leadership roles in quality assurance, underwriting, product development and marketing.  Lynn’s love for her community is demonstrated through her support and volunteer work with various organizations including Preble Street, Camp Sunshine, the Community Doula Birth Program and the Center for Grieving Children.  It was through her work at the Center that Lynn met Tricia Jamiol, the founder of the Maine Center for Sustainability. Inspired by the prospect of being involved from the ground up in an organization that actively protects and honors the environment, offers support and education to the people of Maine and fosters every individual’s responsibility for the earth, Lynn is proud to be a contributor to this organization. Lynn brings a wealth of experience, creativity and positive energy to her role on the Board of Directors.    
Lynn is married to her best friend and is the loving mother of three adult children and one granddaughter. Retirement for Lynn means serving others as a birth and postpartum doula and a volunteer for various organizations. She enjoys being with her family, spending time outdoors in the garden and hiking, reading and making handcrafted fabric and fiber art pieces for a local gallery.
