If you say that Lynne Niemants, one of Cuddigan Law’s Social Security Case Managers, loves to travel, you would be correct, but you would be barely scratching the surface in telling the story of a woman who has many interests and passionately cares about people and important issues of our time. Lynne’s zeal for travel grew when she lived in Austria as an au pair for a year after high school.
Although one of her favorite quotes is “Not all who wander are lost,”when it comes to work she has a laser-like focus on helping the firm’s clients. Her work includes client contact, drafting letters, ordering and reviewing medical records, and conferring with attorneys about claims. “I find it rewarding,” she says, “to know that the work I am doing is making a difference in someone’s life.” Her care and concern for others is also a motivating force in her school work where she studying part time to become a paralegal. “Just a year to go,” she says with a smile.
The list of other interests of this Omaha native is both lengthy and diverse: read, watch musicals (both live and movies), sing in the shower (and almost anywhere else), listen to all kinds of music, solve crosswords, cross stitch and watch football. (In particular she cheers for the Cornhuskers and the New Orleans Saints.) She also passionately supports Planned Parenthood and the World Wildlife Foundation. The oldest of two children, she always finds time for her boyfriend of five years and her eight year-old cat.
One of her role models is Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg whose advice Lynne keeps close to heart: “My mother told me to be a lady, and for her, that meant be your own person, be independent.”
