Presenter's Bio:

Profile photo of Lyndie Simmonds

Lyndie began her career as a high school teacher and has slowly shifted to work with younger and younger populations. Working “upstream” and providing supports right at the very beginning is very rewarding! She has been coordinating the work of the Children’s Council of Skagit County for the past five years and works as the Supervisor of the Thriving Children and Families Pillar at United General District 304.

Jennifer is a registered nurse by background, and has worked with Skagit County Public Health for 30 years, covering a wide variety of programs promoting health and well-being for families from pregnancy through the pre-Kindergarten years. Supporting lifelong health and well-being starting before birth has long been a passion for Jennifer, and she is dedicated to building a sustainable, equitable system of support for children and families in Skagit County and beyond. This includes working with employers to find ways to provide family-friendly policies that benefit both the employer and the employee. Jennifer and her husband Bob have four adult children and have one precious little granddaughter—who, much to their chagrin, lives 2,600 miles away in Knoxville, TN!
