Our retreat’s culinary expert is Lynn Henry, RN. Lynn has been working as a registered nurse for over 30 years. She is a case manager at a large regional hospital in Portland, Oregon, where she also serves on the Ethics Consult Team.
She received her nursing degree from Community Hospital in Springfield, Ohio. She also has a BA in Liberal Studies from Linfield College in Oregon.
Lynn is the mother of two children. After her daughter’s choice at age 15 to become a vegetarian, Lynn added a new stack to her collection of over 200 cook books. Her passion for cooking started at a young age when she learned to cook from her grandmother.
She has spent the last 40 years learning to cook a variety of cuisines, including cooking with women throughout Central America, and in culinary classes in Mexico.
Lynn looks for opportunities to share her culinary creations with those she loves, so entertaining and cooking for groups of her women friends is one of Lynn’s favorite ways to enjoy her hobby. She finds true joy and relaxation in the kitchen, and in cooking for groups of women, she honors them and all women who have shared their cooking magic with her.
