New Staff Feature: Lynn Indermaur Joins Rural Forward

In May, Lynn Indermaur joined the Foundation as the Administrative Coordinator for Rural Forward NC. In her role, Lynn provides administrative support for our Rockingham and Nash County program staff.  She also manages Rural Forward NC external communications and assists with our convening meetings and our electronic data management. With previous experience as a high school teacher in the Wake County school system and as a pharmacy quality control chemist, Lynn brings with her a diverse array of skills and a steadfast commitment to positive change in the community. We asked Lynn a few questions to get to know her better.

Q: Where are you from and how did you end up in North Carolina?

I was born in Danville, VA and grew up in Wilmington, NC.  My husband and I met at NCSU and we lived for ten years in Durham, NC before moving to Midlothian, VA for ten years.  We moved to Greensboro 7 years ago.

Q: What drew you to the Foundation?

I have been friends with Marley Braun for more than 20 years and learned about Rural Forward through her.  The work that she told me about was interesting and uplifting.  She mentioned that they needed administrative support for Rural Forward’s work in Rockingham County and it seemed like a great fit for me because I live very close to Rockingham County.

Q: What types of organizations have you worked for in the past?

I was a high school biology teacher at Cary High School and then worked as a chemist for a pharmaceutical testing lab in RTP.  Once we had children, I stayed at home to take care of them.  I have held multiple volunteer positions in the public schools where our daughters attended as well as for the Food Bank of Central Virginia and our homeowner’s association.

Q: What are you most excited for in this position?

I’m excited to contribute to the mission of Rural Forward and looking forward to meeting new people who are making positive changes in their communities.

Q: What do you like to do for fun/in your free time?

I like to play tennis, go to the gym and spend time with our daughters.
