Lynette was Reiki Australia’s founding Executive Director. In 2000, a group of Reiki people came together in Sydney, with a shared vision: to have Reiki treatment valued as a credible, reputable health care choice. A project team was formed, and Lynette became the driving force in the actions that led, via widespread national consultation and the delivery of two national conferences, to the establishment of the Usui Reiki Practitioner Association (URPA), the name of which was changed in 2004 to Reiki Australia. Lynette served on the Board as the Executive Director until 2009, and her influence is reflected in the Mission, Values and Culture of the organisation.
