Lynn Wallingford Cochrane was born in Lachine, Quebec in 1950 and moved to the US shortly afterward, becoming a US citizen in 1961. She is a dual citizen of Canada and the US. After being raised in Utah and introduced to comprehensive homemaking skills, she spent her young adulthood as a executive secretary in San Francisco, then in Anchorage and Seattle, where she worked and graduated in Horticulture in 1976. In 1977, she bought 32 acres in remote NE Washington state and homesteaded for 10 years in the Kettle Mountains, creating the business of Kettle Care Body Care in 1983. Son Josiah was home delivered in her hand built house, by the light of kerosene lamps, in 1984. In 1989, they moved to Montana to build Kettle Care into a thriving Body Care business. Son Ian was home delivered in 1990. Their herb farm provided the basis of over 300 unique formulations and a creative outlet for Lynn's homesteading, domestic and business skills. Lynn sold her business in 2012, and now manages her property in Whitefish, Montana with her Canadian husband, Steve Cochrane. Email Lynn Directly: greenlynncochrane@gmail.com
