Lin Perry is the Family to Family Project Director for Parent to Parent of NYS and works out of the South Central Regional Office located in Vestal, NY. Lin holds a Master of Public Administration degree from Binghamton University, a BA in Economics from SUNY Cortland and an AS in Business Administration from Broome Community College. Prior to becoming a parent, Lin enjoyed a career in public and private Finance. Lin is a problem solver and enjoys helping people navigate complex systems. Having children with special needs has led her to use her skills on a different career pathway.
Lin is the proud mom of four children who all have a currently unspecified Connective Tissue Disorder. The children also have other diagnoses such as ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder, Neuro-Motor Coordination Disorder, Developmental Coordination Disorder, and have both visual and aortic abnormalities. Discovering that all of her children posses this genetic condition was very difficult for Lin. What has gotten her though the rough times is having other parents that she can reach out to for support. Lin understands the complexity of raising a child (or children) with special needs and how having the right support network makes all the difference in helping those children reach their full potential.
Lin lives in Broome County with her husband, Brian, and their children, Erin, Aedan, Ian and Declan. They also have three cats and a dog. Lin loves to be outdoors and she and her family enjoy camping.
