About Lynn Sherwood-Humphries
Lynn Sherwood is an influencer, mom, grandma, wife, neighbor, businesswoman, daughter, entrepreneur, author and friend.
As a friend, wife, mom of two daughters, and grandma of three, Lynn Sherwood-Humphries is passionate about people. She is a former ER and medical-surgical nurse and end-of-life caregiver to family members and private clients. Lynn describes herself as a serial-entrepreneur, with her heart in the service industry.
Through several entrepreneurial endeavors, she’s learned a lot through her successes, and even more through her failures! In each venture, from owning UPS Store franchises, to a retail gift business, to beginning a private duty nursing department, a day trading stint, and leading the children, youth and family ministry through her church, she yearns to reach people and become new friends.
After a 20+ year fear of guns, Lynn Sherwood discerned just eight years ago that it wasn’t the gun she was afraid of it was the bad guy behind the gun. Empowered as she worked through her fears, she jumped in to learn everything she could about firearms, personal defense, and competitive shooting, so she could effectively share her passion with shooters from around the world. Lynn now especially enjoys working with children, youth, families and corporate groups to share her passion for the shooting sports, and the mental and physical fundamentals of personal defense, in a safe, educational and FUN manner.
Lynn has a background in business ownership and management, and event coordination. With global vision, and as a hands-on shooting instructor, she’s helped take Jackson Hole Shooting Experience to the next level of Luxury Entertainment Shooting Experiences; she is also extremely detail oriented, rather OCD about dotting ‘i’s and crossing ‘t’s and managing systems and details with excellence, in every business she touches.
Lynn is grieving the loss of her 25 year old daughter, Lauren, who succumbed to the insidious disease of small cell lung cancer in 2018, just 5 months after an incidental diagnosis. In her quest to find meaning in life and suffering, her healing largely comes in the form of helping others. Through support groups, sharing with other grieving families, educating people about lung cancer, grief and end-of-life care, sharing her many years of experiences as a nurse, end-of-life caregiver, and shooting sports coach, some days she ‘crashes’ and doesn’t even want to get out of bed with the emotional pain, and most minutes she’s ready at ’em to help YOU get through your struggles, too.
Here’s to taking this journey together, friends ~ I’m Oddly Grateful to be here.

Oddly Grateful is a passion, an outlet for my own healing. I DO have some help though!
Lynn’s husband Shepard Humphries helps me with all kinds of things, from web design to SEO and concept development, and is one of my favorite philosophical sounding boards.
