Cathi joined the Mercy Street team in 2021. Cathi is a technology buff and high school computer programming teacher. It only takes a moment in her presence to catch a glimpse of why students love her; she has a big heart and generous spirit.
Cathi teaches photoshop and enjoys photography of all kinds (she even has a drone that she "plays with"). Each summer she challenges herself to learn something new, last year it was the flute, several years ago it was photography. Since then she's been eagerly practicing and honing her skills photographing her students, friends and family members. She is truly passionate about photography and we are so grateful to have her join our team!
Cathi has 3 children and 10 grandchildren.
Lynn joined Mercy Street in 2015. At the time she was working in pediatric dentistry, which proved to be a fantastic segue for a photography career in terms of getting kids to "smile".
Lynn's quick wit and fun personality instantly puts everyone at ease, which is evident by the beautiful images she creates. She has a tremendous eye for making every day moments magical. Her interest in photography blossomed when she became a mom. Lynn has two children at home and knows the lyrics to Paw Patrol by heart! Her superpower is winning kids over with her big smile, kind nature, and silly ways. Lynn has lots of patience and even more fun up her sleeves.
Lynn is an avid runner, who enjoys wandering around Target and seeing how much she can accomplish during naptime.
