Linda was born and raised in northwestern Nebraska. She graduated from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and moved to Casper 9 days later. She has spent most of her professional career educating children in the Casper area.
Linda and her family love spending time together outdoors. They spend most of their free time hiking, fishing, hunting, boating, winter sports, and adventuring on their ORVs. They have backpacked the Winds, climbed Hunter Peak in the Beartooths, hiked and camped in the Snowies, boated Flaming Gorge, and enjoyed many areas and activities in between. Linda recently started archery hunting for elk and is hooked. If you have a few minutes (hours), you can ask her about her favorite hunting stories.
For 18 years, Linda and her family organized and held a youth fishing derby in memory of their oldest son, Hunter. While working as the East Region Pathfinder, Linda would like to focus on involving more youth in Wyoming's outdoor recreational activities.
