Lynn Swayze

I’m an Indianapolis IT consultant, writer, entrepreneur, and mother of four.

“Lynn was a great part of our team and always put forth her best effort. She has a great ‘can-do’ attitude and looks for ways to not only help move projects to fruition but to also add value towards the project goals. One of her greatest talents is her ability to learn and adapt. This enables her to tailor her already impressive skill set to be an even better fit to the project that she is working on. Any project or team would be lucky to have Lynn as a part of it.”
