Linda had a catholic education all the way through high school and went on to Shasta College and then was accepted into the very competitive dental hygiene program in Sacramento. She was the youngest in her class at 19 years old with the average age being 33. This is her 35th year as a dental hygienist and she has so much knowledge and ability in her field. She competes in endurance horse racing and has completed the world-renowned 100-mile Tevis Cup race twice. She enjoys hiking and has climbed Mt. Whitney many times. She has a green thumb and has a thriving garden and a small hobby farm. On her days off, she likes to vacation with her husband and her Dalmatian dog (named Rachet) in their travel trailer visiting as many National Parks as possible.
