Lynn Verheul grew up in rural Nova Scotia loving the outdoors. Most of her time was spent appreciating the delights of being on a farm. After high school she attained a BA in Political Science and began traveling throughout Southeast Asia. Looking for a new adventure, she did her STCW95 training and worked two seasons on yachts. After cruising around the Caribbean and eastern seaboard of the US, she returned home again to work in administrative positions. Later she decided to return to academia and pursue a career in law. Currently a history major at Acadia, she is excited to be involved in an energetic university and community.
