Linda grew up in the best place—with the city of Chicago up the road, Lake Michigan close by, dense, calming forests a mile away and a wide open prairie a mile the other way (where you can drive a car as fast as you can go forever!). She spent summers in the mountains and small towns of Sevier County, Utah. When she was seven, she won six free lessons on the accordion, and subsequently took lessons for three years. That turned into three years on the organ, a couple more years on the piano, a year on the guitar and six weeks on the trumpet and French horn. Originally planning to attend the University of Utah to major in dance, Linda ended up at BYU, where she spent two years as a music major, but actually graduated in Clothing & Textiles/Merchandising. She met her husband while she worked in Tucson, Arizona, then returned to the Salt Lake area. They have three married children and fostered a “bonus” daughter for two years. They have four grandchildren and two grand dogs. Linda has sung in choirs since she was 11 under some great directors, including Merrilee Webb, Jean Applonie, Roz Hall, and of course Kelly DeHaan and Michael Huff of Utah Voices. One of her greatest experiences was directing a regional choir in the Salt Lake Tabernacle at the request of Elder Dallin Oaks. Linda feels lucky to work at some great places and use her education and background.
WebMaster and Engineer
My love for all things engineering led me to studying the languages of computer code. I became a Web Developer in 2015 while going to school at the University of Utah with a Major in Biomedical Engineering. I know PHP, Wordpress, SQL, HTML, CSS, JAVA, Python, Matlab, Mathmatica, Solidworks, Turbocad and am learning more and more every single year.
