Episode 8: Lynne Prevost
Lynne Prevost, Business Solutions Manager
Lynne was born in London, England, with Caribbean parents from Dominica. She came with her parents to Boston at the age of 6 intending to return one year later, but they never did. She tells Edgar about her time adjusting to Boston because of her British accent and having a difficult time with a segregated environment at high school. Everything changed with her college experiences in BU. She had plans to become a doctor, then adventured through learning electrical engineering in Wentworth to finally settle for computer science. Lynne started at Harvard in 2006, and tells us about her journey to the position she holds now in ITS. She shares stories of her visits to the candy bowl in DOS, when Edgar used to work there, to “introduce” new hires. We also hear about her aspirations to learn how to sing, which she is still figuring out.
Some fun facts about Lynne:
-She studied Japanese for 2 years and is currently studying Portuguese
-She loves Alfred Hitchcock and has seen all of his movies multiple times
-She loves any type of travel
