Lynne Wideline Gassant came to Florida from Haiti at the age of 14 where understanding the language was half of her battle. She struggled throughout middle school yet managed to maintain good academic standing and transitioned to secondary school. Since her parents were unfamiliar with the educational system, it was hard to figure out “what’s next?” for her future. Seeking the minimal available resources, she discovered her first mentor at Boca Raton Community high school, Mrs. Kessler. She understood her personal struggles and became a great friend. She was always available and willing to offer Lynne advice and guidance. With Mrs. Kessler’s assistance, she felt inspired and truly capable of greatness despite the challenges she faced. As a result, she received numerous scholarships which permitted her attendance at an accredited university and, to this day, she have maintained a strong relationship with Mrs. Kessler. She proved that one person can make a tremendous difference. That’s when Lynne learned about the power of “Mentoring”.
Following her undergraduate studies, she had a strong desire and willingness to give back to the community and hopefully make a difference. Thus, Scholar Career Coaching was created to help ESL (English as a Second Language) high school students.
Lynne is currently Mrs. Palm Beach County United States and a Human Resources Recruiter in the Palm Beach County area. Prior to her current role, she was the HR Manager at Braman BMW. She holds a Master’s Degree in Human Resources Management from Florida International University and Bachelor’s Degree in Public Management from Florida Atlantic University.
