LYNDA LEVAN, Executive Director

Lynda LeVan has served as Executive Director for SoLit since 2017.  A Nashville native, she is a graduate of the University of Tennessee at Knoxville with a B.S. in Business Administration and a major in Marketing. The majority of her career has been spent in non-profit management and fundraising. In 2000 she moved back to her husband's hometown of Chattanooga to be closer to family. She has worked as Executive Director of Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization for 10 years and, most recently, as Director of External Affairs at Creative Discovery Museum for 7 years. She lives on Signal Mountain with her husband Mike and has two sons, Andrew and Aaron.

Lynda is a life-long reader and an advocate for the art and benefit of literature in our daily lives.  She credits her mother, who read to her at a young age and regularly took her to the library, for her passion for reading
