Tara Lynn

Board Position: Treasurer

I am currently serving as the Treasurer and Interim Executive Director of Open Hand of Fredericksburg.  I was drawn to Open Hand because of its focus on developmental mercy and the organization’s overall interest in improving the lives of young people in our community.  Serving, teaching, and inspiring young people has been a passion of mine as long as I can remember.  

With a degree in accounting from Auburn University, I’ve worked extensively in the financial industry for several years.  I love numbers and making everything balance!  Most significantly I am passionate about how intentional financial and organizational skills impact and enhance the lives of others.  I enjoy using my talents to serve Open Hand of Fredericksburg and being engaged in seeking the welfare of our community.  Ultimately, I want to see our organization thrive in its overall purpose of impacting the lives of people for the glory of God!  
On a personal note, I have been married to my best friend, Chris for 20 years. We share three sharp kids and a bichon poodle.  I enjoy reading, group fitness classes, spending time with God, and cooking. On any day you can catch me dancing around my kitchen to gospel music.  

I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve and grow with Open Hand of Fredericksburg!
