Lynda Fraser is a graduate of the Art and Art History program at McMaster University. She was a Tigercat cheerleader in 1986, 1987 and 1988. While attending McMaster University she was also a cheerleader for 2 years in 1986 and 1987. Lynda also expanded her cheerleading roots by coaching her former high school co-ed cheerleading team in 1987 and 1988, for competitions placing second and first in consecutive years. Lynda has a diverse background in management, entrepreneurship, and fundraising. Lynda has over 14 years of management and financial experience, with most of those years spent at McMaster University as an Administrator. Currently, Lynda runs a successful business as a Senior Director for Thirty-one Gifts with a team of over 100 consultants. In this role, Lynda has always felt giving back to the community is a vital component of who she is, thus she has had many volunteer roles, most notably as a Director on the Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice, Board of Directors and as the Community Connector for the McMaster Children’s Mental Health Department which partners with Thirty-one Gifts. Lynda is very creative and enjoys planning and organizing events, fundraisers and parties but does not like being the center of them. In her spare time, Lynda enjoys spending time with her 3 children, her dog, and watching sports with her husband Wayne, particularly football and she never misses a Hamilton Tiger-Cat game or a Seattle Seahawks game.
