Lynette is the daughter of Cuban immigrants and she learned to speak Spanish before speaking English. Growing up in Miami, FL, she attended the prestigious New World School of the Arts High School and went on to graduate from Florida International University where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Dance with an emphasis in education. Prior to moving to TN she worked as a High School Dance Teacher with the Miami Dade County Public School System.
Once in Nashville, she began working with a Christian recording artist that used dancers in their ministry. This was a dream come true for Lynette and she loved the opportunity to use her love of music and dance to serve God as she toured with this ministry for about three years. During this time she also tutored Spanish.
Lynette later served on the staff of a local children's ministry where she became the "large group worship coordinator." In this role she used music, dance, theatre, and multimedia elements to communicate Biblical truths with children. Lynette loved to see the hearts of these young children as they worshiped God and learned more about His Word!
She later returned to Florida where she worked in a University of Miami research study with both Spanish speaking and English speaking families who had children with autism. Upon returning to Nashville, Lynette began working at Vanderbilt University as a part of various research studies including the G.R.O.W. trial where she led a team that conducted cognitive assessments for children in both English and Spanish. Lynette later went on to work as a Spanish teacher with the Williamson County Schools "Elementary World Language Program."
She is honored to be on staff at Grace Christian Academy and is excited to combine her love of the arts, education, children, and above all God, to teach students Spanish! Lynette and her husband Chris are also songwriters and are beyond blessed to parent their two young daughters Abigail and Anna!
