Born in rural New Jersey, Lynnda grew up surrounded by trees. She communicated to insects, raised baby birds and wandered through a childhood feeling like she belonged somewhere there was always some time, some place that was waiting for her. As an adult, Lynnda moved to New York City and began experiencing life from many perspectives. After her father died, she heard a voice tell her to go to Sedona, AZ, and that began a journey into a spiritual awakening. She immersed herself in raw foods, spiritual disciplines, energy work and levels of awareness.

Lynnda has always been deeply committed to elevating human consciousness. This life purpose has guided her as an accomplished advertising executive, as a consultant and thought leader in conscious business practices, and as the world’s first Chief Consciousness Officer, supporting Fortune 500 companies by helping them engage the human technologies of wisdom, intuition, compassion, empathy, forgiveness and gratitude. Currently, as a New Consciousness Educator and Author, she continues to connect people with the universal truths that lie within their hearts, so that we all may reach a more sustainable, caring future.

Lynnda never expected to be a writer until she heard the mystical voice of Addie Mae Aubrey, a Southern, African-American woman asking her to share her story. Together, they shared an unusual journey through space and time that transformed Lynnda's life forever.

We are all in the process of becoming something unexpected. She is no exception.
