Lydia started her career as a CPA in Jacksonville, Florida, after receiving a business degree from Florida State University. A few years later, she made the decision to attend law school at American University in Washington D.C. After she graduated, she was admitted to The Florida Bar and worked as a staff attorney for a judge on the United States Tax Court. Lydia has consistently been working to further her knowledge and education in order to better serve her community.
When Lydia was working in San Francisco, she noticed something unsettling in the community that she believed she could impact. She began packing lunches for the homeless and would pass them out every day to those in need. Not seeking funding or acclaim, she simply used the resources she had to make her community a better place. In 2001, the Board of Supervisors of the City and County of San Francisco named May 12th “Lydia Boesch Day” in recognition of her work for the citizens of San Francisco.
After relocating to Pinehurst, Lydia sought and won election to the Pinewild Country Club Advisory Board as the social chair, in order to further serve her community. In that role, she worked to plan and execute social events that would provide ways for all Pinewild residents to get to know each other.
Lydia was elected to the Board of Directors for the Pinewild Property Owners Association in 2013. She served for six years, the last two as President. As the PPOA President, Lydia served as the Pinewild representative on the Village’s Neighborhood Advisory Committee. In this capacity, Lydia met monthly with representatives of neighborhoods throughout Pinehurst, heard their concerns, and listened to the Village’s responses to these concerns.
Lydia also just completed eleven years of service as a member of the North Carolina Parks & Recreation Authority. Lydia’s favorite role on this board was annually awarding matching grants to local communities all over North Carolina to build or improve local parks or recreational facilities.
Lydia also is an active member of Christ Community Church where she teaches ladies’ Bible studies and is the coordinator for the church’s Connections Center.
