Lynch served as a team service manager for the Boston Celtics, who reportedly handled travel, lodging, and game tickets for Celtics family members. She most likely arranged Udoka’s travel and Nia Long’s relocation to Boston.

According to The Jasmine Brand, “Kathleen Lynch, who grew up in an active Mormon family, lived for years as a teenager in Wellesley, Massachusetts. She later attended college with Danny Ainge’s daughter at the basketball star’s alma mater Brigham Young University, a school in Provo, Utah sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”
“She graduated in 2011 and two years later was hired by the Boston Celtics, working under Ainge who was the chief of basketball operations. Sources close to Lynch say she’s been left devastated and afraid to show her face publicly, wanting to avoid scrutiny given her name and photo have circulated. Danny Ainge’s daughter, Taylor, a close friend of Lynch, wouldn’t discuss specifics when contacted by sources however she urged the media to respect the privacy of the parties involved.”
Taylor said, “These are human beings involved that have families and are dealing with a lot of consequences themselves, and they don’t need people and Twitter and the news media making it worse. There’s a reason that people aren’t discussing this. It’s been investigated and it’s over. The Celtics are doing what they have to do.”
Since Kathleen Lynch’s identity has been released, there’s been no trace of the woman on social media. People are speculating that she deleted all of her socials once the scandal surfaced.
