Linda has lived in Spokane for over 35 years. She grew up in Seattle, majored in Spanish at the University of Washington, and spent a year at the University of Madrid. In the 70’s she worked several years for the Girl Scouts, organizing troops and managing volunteers in Central and South Seattle.
Linda moved to Spokane with her future husband, Tim, after getting an MBA. She worked in financial analysis over the course of 25 years at four community banks while raising two sons and a daughter. Her career wrapped up in 2015 after she’d spent several years as SVP/Treasurer at AmericanWest Bank.
Linda became involved with NAMI Spokane after her younger son was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 2011. She and Tim attended a NAMI Family-to-Family course and Linda served on the NAMI Spokane board from 2016 to 2018. Her community involvement includes Transitions where she served as Board Chair from 2015 to 2017.
Linda strongly believes in NAMI’s mission and wants to work in extending the reach of NAMI Spokane as it increases programs to serve a broader part of our community.
