Remarkable Women of the North Country: Lynn Godek is a mom, volunteer and landscape architect

Remarkable Women

(WWTI) – Lynn Godek is a mother of three children, a landscape architect and a volunteer in the community.

While heavily involved in volunteerism, it all starts right at home by taking on the responsibility of planning her family reunion. Among her hobbies, Godek enjoys knitting and donates her handmade items to people at church who are expecting new babies.

Perhaps the biggest way she stands out is by not allowing social norms dictate how she lives her life. “Gender boundaries really are whatever you make of them,” Godek said.

You can hear the rest of Lynn Godek’s story, along with the stories of other remarkable women in our community, on April 1 at 7 p.m. on ABC50.
