Lynn Toole is the current President of the New Direction Board. She brings a breadth of both medical and entrepreneurial experience to the New Direction team as both a Registered Nurse and Hotel Owner/Operator. She joined the board in April of 2017 after an invitation from Judy Williams. They were introduced as a result of Lynn seeking assistance for a young friend who was in late term pregnancy. She was so impressed by the ministry and how New Direction Women's Center serves the community that she had a heartfelt desire to serve in some way. As well as serving as a New Direction Board member, Lynn has served in her parish in pastoral ministry and religious education. She is the mother of 4 grown children and grandmother of 2. She and her husband, Joe, of 38 years live in Lenox.
