Lynne Thew, B.A.

Instructor of Communication

Office: Irwin Hall 327

Phone: (707) 965-6696

Faculty Since: 2007

B.A., Pacific Union College, 1978


Professor Lynne Thew came to Pacific Union College in 2005 as an adjunct professor and joined the faculty in 2007. She teaches the journalism courses within the Pacific Union College Department of Communication.

Professor Thew has ghostwritten eight business and medical books, including the bestselling Six Sigma: The Breakthrough Management Strategy Revolutionizing the World's Top Corporations (Doubleday).

During the course of a twenty-year career in Washington, D.C., and New York, she interviewed a range of notable figures including former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, General Electric CEO Jack Welch, former senator and U.S. ambassador to China James Sasser, futurist Alvin Toffler, and Nobel Prize-nominee Ranjit K. Chandra. In addition to the business of writing and editing books, she has written copious amounts of catalogue copy and more book proposals than she cares to remember.

Her greatest regret in life is that she ever threw away a book. She is passionate about journalism and a well-turned sentence.
