Lynn Landry joined Rock Steady Juggling in March 2013 as Office Manager. Growing up in the bayous of South Louisana, Lynn was involved with local conservation organizations early on working to preserve the wetlands that are the lifeblood of rural Cajun life. She and her husband have two children, Miles and Audrey, and live in Alameda. When not working or spending time with her family, she shops flea markets and estate sales, makes "hacked art" from recycled materials, volunteers in her community and can whip up a mean pot of gumbo when necessary.
