Lynette Zilio is a public outreach coordinator for The Mesothelioma Center, where she strives to spread awareness about mesothelioma and the dangers of asbestos exposure.
Lynette was born and raised in Miami, but moved to Gainesville in 2007 to attend the University of Florida. Throughout her academic career, she interned for The Miami Herald and The Denver Post, in addition to writing for The Anole, UFs first multilingual magazine; and INsite Magazine, a Gainesville-based entertainment magazine. Lynette graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in online journalism and a minor in Spanish. She is currently pursuing an online masters in mass communication and social media at UF.
After graduating from UF, the Gator alum moved back to Miami to work as a sales and marketing assistant for a wholesale designer handbag company. She was responsible for working directly with customers, sales representatives and department store buyers to ensure their orders were properly filled and for traveling to trade shows. She used her digital skills to spearhead the creation of the companys social media channels and monthly customer email blasts. Lynette later worked as an SEO and social media specialist for a cloud-computing company and Google partner, where she used digital marketing tactics to build an online presence for the company’s clients. Lynette joined The Mesothelioma Center in June 2014, when she made the move to Orlando.
When Lynette isn’t working on her online classes, she enjoys traveling, trying the latest and greatest restaurants in town, meeting new people and building relationships. She also enjoys reading the latest news related to social media, SEO and other digital marketing tactics.
Since joining The Mesothelioma Center, Lynette has used her writing and communications background to help the Public Outreach Department connect with various organizations that help educate people about mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. She hopes to continue finding new ways of spreading the word about these and other health-related issues.
