Lynn Lallier, Team Member of the Month!

Lynn Lallier was named the Human Development Center’s (HDC) first “Employee of the Month” this past September! Nominated by Director Dr. Phil Wilson, Lynn has worked with LSUHSC for more than 20 years and with HDC for 8 years. HDC’s Business Manager Mitze Jones describes Lynn as, “Simply, an amazing worker all around. She never hesitates to go the extra mile and is always willing to help. Since we have been short staffed in the Business Office, she continues to remain positive and steady towards our goals.”

We interviewed Lynn to learn more about her job.  

What’s your role at HDC?

I’m the Associate Business Manager here at the Human Development Center. I assist our Business Manager Mitze Jones with a lot of paperwork, especially for the Early head Start grant. I create financial reports, projections, and invoice documentation.

How long have you been in this role?

It’s been 8 years now.

What is your favorite part of the role?

The Human Development Center’s programs work to improve outcomes for people with developmental disabilities and help the community.  I think it’s important work. Even though my role is mostly paperwork, I know that it supports these programs.

It is wonderful to see different programs work together.  Each person brings different skills and experiences, and everyone pitches in.

What does “Building Capacity. Inspiring Change.” Mean to you?

I think it’s about bringing groups together to collaborate and to expand services.  It is also about working with stakeholders to improve access to resources and educational opportunities.
