Linda moved with her family to Washington in 1989, where she raised her three children in the forests, fields, and on the coasts of Bainbridge Island. Her love for nature runs deep from the woodland creatures that cohabitate on her land to the uncompromising beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
After serving as an Executive Legislative Assistant for the Washington State Senate over the last decade, Linda recently retired to focus on personal and community projects. Previously she has been involved in shoreline oil spill response and restoration projects, both internationally and domestically. She has worked in television as an Assistant News Director, owned a relations agency, managed the Bainbridge Island Farmers’ Market, organized workshops and a national conference on urban runoff, and has been involved in communications for a broad group of clients and has volunteered extensively in the local community in many areas from education to the environment.
Her call to action focuses on nurturing and restoring the balance between society and nature and developing and implementing innovative solutions. The protection, restoration, and ability to provide sustainable solutions for the environment and local communities are her key driving factors.
