About Lynn

I am 53-years old, college educated and trained in culinary arts. I have served as a personal chef to a portfolio of clients, many of whom have special dietary needs and goals. I cook everything from standard diet dishes to allergen-free, gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, or anything requested by the client. My work has led me to interface with Registered Dietitians at Hunterdon Cancer Center in Flemington, NJ where I worked to develop recipe concepts for a variety of physical conditions stemming from cancer, and cancer treatment and recovery. With multiple senior clients, my culinary work led me to expand my support services for senior client into daily living, emotional and psychological support for those aging in place and those who no longer drive. I am also open to offer personal care support if needed. I am open to motor vehicle and criminal background checks and am trusted by multiple clients over the years with references available upon request.

    I love being surrounded by older people, they are so full of wisdom and history. That is what drew me to being a care giver. I love helping them and being able to help and care for them as they once cared for me when I was younger. They deserve the best care and that is one thing I am proud of, giving them the best of me. I am a careful listener and will go above and beyond to making your loved one comfortable and cared for.
