“We had no clue where to begin when our daughter, Alaina, decided that she wanted to go beyond the scope of community theater and to pursue becoming a professional actress/model. Lynne Carole of the Lynne Experience, thankfully came into our lives around the same time and was extremely helpful. She directed us to a professional photographer for amazing head shots, sent Alaina out on jobs, connected her with an LA agency which led to a booking for the Five Below Stores’ print ad campaign and then about a month later to another booking for the video shoot for commercials for the Five Below store products, all incredible experiences and opportunities that were vastly due to our relationship with Lynne and the Lynne Experience.”
