Lynell Dow

Lynn Dow believes much of the success in her life, both professionally and personally, has come from the advice her mother gave her at a very early age. “She taught me to stand up for myself and believe in myself,” says Dow, who believes these guiding principles have helped her make good decisions. “I’ve been able to make choices that correspond with my values while taking others into consideration.” She also credits her husband for her happiness, “He reminds me every day that he finds my determination and strength to be beautiful and feminine,” she says. “I’m very fortunate to have a career I’m passionate about,” she adds, “Discover what you love and success will come.”
