Lynette Cornwell

Lynette Cornwell has what she considers to be the best job — showing off the Berkshire’s natural beauty and cultural richness, meeting sophisticated travel-learners, and going to performances all summer! A Midwestern girl by upbringing and nature, she has lived from coast to coast and overseas. She taught English and French in Turkey, Germany, and Walpole, Mass. After stints in educational publishing and banking, she worked for 20 years at Berkshire Community College, in noncredit offerings and special events, then as the college’s first director of public relations.
