Lynn gets a serve from Flathead Fisher in ep. 16.

Loud mouthed Lynn was fostered by Tom and his Pippa Fletcher. Lynn struggled to bond with her other foster siblings, especially Carly Morris. In February 1988 (Episode 11), Lynn ran away from home and stayed in a derelict barn at a dilapidated farmhouse which was actually inhabited by the elderly Greek lady Mrs Pappas and her grandson Nico. Lynn later returned to the Fletcher house. Donald Fisher wanted Lynn to pretend she was sexually assaulted so he could get Nico put away due to his mental health. Lynn refused to comply with her deputy head's wishes.

In July 1988 (Episode 127), Lynn returned to her real parents.

In August 1988 (Episode 157), Lynn returned briefly to Summer Bay for the christening of Tom and Pippa's son Christopher, then returned to the city. That was her final visit to Summer Bay. Producers stated that when she returned she would be involved in some fairly dramatic storylines, however she was written out of the series, because of the size of the cast, with executives stating "because of the size of the cast, some actors get "lost", and don't appear on screen for long"

Although she has been spoken of by the Fletchers, as of 2018, whereabouts since her departure are unknown, and she has not returned to the Bay since her departure.
