Lynley Closson (she/her)

  • Program Manager, Code for America

Lynley Closson (she/her) is a social worker, Californified Midwesterner (based in LA, from Kansas City), foodie, and avid listener. She has a thirst for adventure that has guided her career. Lynley loves bringing the light out of people and places. Her career led her to collaborate with small businesses in rural Iowa, to act as a community organizer in St. Louis, to guide partners at a tech organization in San Francisco, and most recently, to support a large portfolio of grantees at United Way of Greater Los Angeles. When she’s not doing the most to help others at her job, you can find her volunteering at a campground in Santa Cruz, showing off pictures of her adorable niece and nephew, or exploring new neighborhoods with her partner.
