Lynn grew up in northern Ohio, one of seven children. Her father was born in Hicksville, Long Island, and proudly served in both the Army and the Navy. Lynn's mother grew up on her family farm, one of the few remaining century farms in Ohio. Lynn completed her bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering with high honors at Ohio University and immediately began her career with DuPont. She enjoyed a great career for the next 34 years with global roles in business, operations and supply chain. She holds three supply chain certifications.
Lynn led teams to accomplish great successes for the company and their communities. One of her most personally and professionally impactful experiences was aiding the manufacturing team and community of Manati, Puerto Rico, after the devastation caused by a category 5 hurricane, Maria, in 2017. The plant provided support to the local hospital and community while safely and rapidly restarting the manufacturing plant. In the words of the site manager, "Lynn Mey is an incredible leader. I had the privilege to work with her and learn from her example." Her experience in successfully leading these very diverse teams will be a tremendous asset, both in representing our diverse communities and working with all members of the General Assembly, who have many different views, to get things done!
Lynn and her husband, Jeff, have been married for 32 years. They have lived in Cannonshire Development for the past 20 years, raising their four children, each graduating from the University of Delaware and now raising their own young families right here in Delaware. They have been blessed with seven grandchildren! She has been a very active member of St. Margaret of Scotland's Church and working with the youth. Lynn has been helping young adults prepare for the sacrament of Confirmation for the past 15 years and also spent several years coaching CYM track and cross-country teams. She is a member of the Newark Rotary and a board member of the Delaware Right to Life. Lynn was recognized by the Diocese of Wilmington as Volunteer of the Year in 2014.
Lynn loves to run and has completed two marathons and multiple half-marathons. She recently completed the inaugural half-marathon in our beautiful city of Newark. Lynn knows endurance and she's excited to be running for our 25th District, ready to serve our community and our beautiful state of Delaware!
