Lynn Nielsen
Director of Development

Lynn Nielsen joined the Administration as Director of Development in 2018, but previously had been a part of the Omni community as a parent of two boys who attended Omni for elementary and the Adolescent Program. She remembers first discovering Montessori education and thinking that it’s the way everyone should learn, and she still feels the same way.

Lynn has served nonprofits in many capacities, from volunteer to board member to staff member through the years. She is happy to be back at Omni working with the whole community to strengthen
support for the school and help Omni continue to grow. 

In her spare time Lynn enjoys serving on the board of Matthews Playhouse of the Performing Arts, reading to keep up with two book clubs, and spending time with family and friends.
