About Lynelle Haugabrook

Lynelle pursued a major in the challenging field of Public Policy. Originally from the small town of Las Cruces, New Mexico, Lynelle documents the transition to big city life, the policymaking process, and how to survive the metro during the Winter Seminar in Washington DC.

Constantly on the move, Lynelle worked two jobs while commuting from Hampton Roads to finish her last semester at the College. Using her personable prose and detailed storytelling, Lynelle paints a vivid picture of the behind-the-scenes and quotidian aspects of the W&M 2015 Winter Seminar.
