Evelyn graduated from the University of Washington, and was recruited by her former high school principal to teach English. Following her teaching career she received a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Puget Sound, and a second Master’s Degree in Family Therapy from Pacific Lutheran University. Her success as a professional therapist, and the founder of Lakewood Professional Counseling Center with nine associates required her to become familiar with real estate, leasing and management. While serving the community for 18 years as a clinician, she began developing office buildings. The past 25 years she has worked alongside her late husband, Gene Lynn, in the healthcare industry. Together they developed, constructed and operated Healthcare facilities under the name “Careage” which stands for “Care for the aged”. They both shared the passion for helping people, and believed that to enhance another person’s life was the most gratifying of all rewards. It has been their calling and mission!
