With a Bachelor of Science degree in Education with certifications in Spanish and English, Linda was an inspiring high school teacher for over 17 years. She has mentored and coached both students and colleagues, utilizing techniques she learned through training in Neuro-Linguistic Programming in Education and Youth Empowerment and through researching and coordinating staff development for an entire faculty. She successfully helped to guide four children into adulthood and grew immensely through the time period when she was a stay-at-home mom helping with the family business “in her spare time.”
Growing up in Nebraska, Linda learned the value of family and the ethics of working hard towards one’s goals. Her time teaching in the San Francisco Bay Area gave her a great appreciation for diversity and a broadened world perspective. For the last 23 years, Linda has made northern Idaho her home where she has developed a greater love for the outdoors and enjoyed the charm of community and life in a small university town.
