About Lynmarie

I joined Legacy in 2005 as a part-time content screener, and through the years have had the pleasure to contribute to several teams and a variety of projects. I find myself somewhat on the path to “simple living” and working at Legacy seems to complement that journey.

Occasionally I have time to do the things I am really good at –like pondering the mysteries of the universe.
