Meet The Team

Due to her vision, experience, and dedication (and some good timing), she was able to grow the company to a national level, with head office staff and Relocation Specialists currently providing services across Canada. She serves as President of Welcomehome Relocations and attributes the ongoing success of the company to an unwavering commitment to customer service excellence, honesty, integrity, and dedicated and talented staff members (and a lot of blood, sweat and tears).

Lynn has been a part of the Welcomehome family since its conception in 1998. With her knowledge in Real Estate/Corporate law, and an 11 year stint as a Real Estate agent, Relocations was a natural and easy transition.

Lynn is the backbone of the day-to-day operations at Welcomehome Relocations.

Lynn’s guidance is the driving force behind the daily operations of the organization.

Karina Capotosto

No stranger to relocating, Karina worked in Colombia, Guatemala, and Mexico as a National Controller for the Natural Learning Corporation. Karina become part of the Welcomehome family in March of 2008. She is grateful to Judy and Nitin for taking a chance on someone who was still learning the English language.
