Lynnie Minkowski Candler, Director of Youth Development

Lynnie Minkowski grew up on the squash courts of Baltimore competing from a young age, first with her 3 squash playing siblings, and later becoming a Division I National Champion playing on the Trinity College team. Lynnie has coached squash teams and individuals for over 15 years, at Roland Park Country School, Loyola College, The Westminster Schools, and Windy Hill Athletic Club.

Following her college career, she earned her Masters in Clinical Psychology, then working at the National Institutes of Health conducting neurochemical research within an at risk population. In 2010 Lynnie combined these two interests to develop programming as the first program director at Chucktown Squash, the Southeasts first urban squash program. Today, her first class of students is applying to college! 

Following the success of Chucktown Squash in Charleston, Lynnie and her husband Samuel Candler founded A+Squash, eager to fill the urban squash void in Atlanta and introduce the sport to a new group of enthusiastic scholar athletes. Lynnie is thrilled to return to A+Squash as she steps into her new role, Director of Youth Development.
