Linda finds people endlessly interesting. She loves working with both functional and dysfunctional families.
In her “other life,” she was at Woodstock in 1969. She also built, owned, and operated a KOA Kampground in Gardiner, Maine before she became a lawyer.
Although her legal and community activities keep her extremely busy, Linda makes time for the loves of her life, her children and her six grandchildren and her hobby of foreign travel.
