Meet the Staff is a monthly feature. This month, meet Accountant and Office Manager Lynn McEachran.
How long have you worked at Beacon? I can’t believe it’s already been two years!
Describe your job - not necessarily your official job description but what you really do every day. As accountant/office manager, I do the accounting, take care of HR, work with the board of directors, and do whatever helps to keep the office running smoothly.
Why do you like working here? Beacon is a wonderful place. It’s so nice to work with people who love their jobs. Everyone is so talented and focused on our mission. That results in many successes along the road to ending homelessness which creates an atmosphere of happiness and pride.
What’s one thing you are most proud of about your work? While I do not have a “hands on” involvement in the many programs Beacon is working on, I am so proud just to be a part of this wonderful organization.
What is your favorite book, movie, comedian, play, sport, pastime? I love to play golf because I love to be outside and I love to garden because I love to make the outside beautiful.
What is something that most people don’t know about you? Lynn claims that her Minnesota Scandanavian and German background will not allow her to bring attention to herself. So we will add that Lynn, though a self-described introvert, enjoys entertaining and excels at party organizing, staff retreat logistics planning, birthday-card-circulating and many other morale-boosting endeavors that help us all connect beyond our job responsibilities.
