Lynnie grew up on a ranch in Southeastern Arizona surrounded by open space, mountains, wildlife, cows, horses, dogs, cats, and various other critters. She has lived in the Northwest since 1972, residing in Halfway and Depoe Bay, Oregon, San Juan Island and Pullman, Washington before moving to Enterprise, Oregon in 1999. The move back to Northeastern Oregon felt like returning home and Lynnie feels fortunate to live in Wallowa County.
Lynnie has worked as a Veterinary Technician at the Double Arrow Veterinary Clinic in Enterprise since 2001. She has been involved with the Eagle Cap Extreme Sled Dog Race since it’s inception, helping with the pre-race Vet Checks and with the Vet Team at Ollokot Checkpoint since 2006. Lynnie has served on the ECX Board of Directors since 2009.
