    Lynn was one of country’s first government digital accessibility specialists. Her work on the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s Americans with Disabilities Act Transition Plan resulted in groundbreaking work in government digital accessibility. The experiences she had and people she met along the way led her to found WeCo Accessibility Services, a mission-based company of digital technologists who live with a wide-range of disabilities. The company provides manual accessibility audit and usability testing.
